Arvada (Colo.) Pomona running back Max Borghi was one of Colorado's first commits for their 2018 recruiting class, but he is committed to the Buffaloes no longer.

On Thursday night, the 5-foot-10, 186-pound three-star recruit flipped from Colorado to Washington State in a surprising move.

Borghi announced the news on Twitter and mentioned the Colorado staff.

"I am grateful for the opportunity Colorado offered me, and want to thank coach MacIntyre, and the whole CU staff," Borghi said. "With that being said, I'm looking forward to repping that crimson and grey."

In the past seven days, Colorado landed two new running back commitments, from Jarek Broussard and Deion Smith, so one is safe to assume that Borghi's flip had something to do with that. Borghi is Wazzu's first running back commit for the 2018 class.

Washington State offered Borghi on February 27, but he never seemed to be too interested in other schools and was solid in his commitment. Nonetheless, Borghi will be facing off against Colorado during his college career now.
