Colorado continued its strong recruiting by landing 3-star wide receiver Daniel Arias on Monday night.
Arias, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound speedster from Jackson High School in Mill Creek, Wash., is the 11th player from the Class of 2018 to commit to the Buffs. He did so on Twitter:

Each of Colorado’s 11 commits in the 2018 recruiting cycle carries a 3-star grade, according to Scout.
“I decided to commit to Colorado because I felt it was the best fit for me, not just from an athletic standpoint but an academic standpoint as well,” Arias told CUSportsNation.com.
Arias will bring a different dimension to the Colorado wide receiver corps, also known as the #BlackoutBoyz. At 6-4, he is adept at high-pointing the ball on vertical patterns on the outside, and has great speed to separate from defenders.
He selected Colorado over offers from Pac-12 schools Utah and Oregon State, as well as Boise State, San Diego State and Michigan State, among others.
