As soon as Mike MacIntyre was hired as the new head football coach at Colorado he knew he quickly had to get to work in Boulder.

One of his first goals as the new head man was to do his best to keep Colorado’s 2013 recruiting class intact and let the future recruits know that he was committed to bringing them success. Now, a little over one month into the new job, MacIntyre has done a nice job of keeping future recruits committed to the Buffs as national signing day rolls around in February.

Among the recruits that have stayed committed to the Buffs are QB Sefo Liufau, WR Bryce Bobo, OL Gunner Graham and RB Phillip Lindsay. Most recently Colorado hosted a group of the recruits on an official visit to campus and as the weekend wrapped up the commits reaffirmed their initial decisions.

Bobo spoke with ESPN and had this to say about his visit, “I’m strong towards Colorado. The entire visit made me want to go there. It was my first time on the campus and it was a really good experience. I liked the leadership of the coaches and they all had good character.” Most notably, Bobo spoke with new wide receivers coach Troy Walters about his role in the new offense and came away impressed with the direction Walters had in mind for him. Bobo said that Walters “wants me to become the next great receiver coming out of Colorado.”

Some of the other recruits that accompanied Bobo on his official visit were fellow offensive players Graham, Lindsay and OL John Lisella. All of the recruits really warmed to the new coaching staff despite temperatures in Boulder hovering around 14 degrees. They liked the direction that the program is headed in and all of them will likely make it official once signing day arrives.

Colorado’s recruiting class will not be one of the best classes in the country but MacIntyre has a certain vision for the program and these incoming recruits will help that vision come to fruition.
