Colorado co-offensive coordinator Darrin Chiaverini tweeted out the "Buff signal" on Thursday evening, and on Friday, we have found out who that new commitment is from.

Dallas (Texas) Bishop Lynch do-it-all athlete Jarek Broussard announced his commitment to the Colorado Buffaloes. Broussard arrived in Boulder on Wednesday night and had a great visit Thursday.

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound three-star speedster chose the Buffs over Colorado State, Houston, Illinois, TCU, and others.

Why did Broussard choose the Buffs?

"The vibe, the coaches, and I'll have a chance to compete for playing time as a freshman," Broussard answered.

Colorado hosted a prospect camp on Thursday, and he showed off his skills for the CU staff.

"I went out there and did my thing - showed them how we do it in Dallas, Texas," Broussard said. "The camp was a great experience, and I just feel like Colorado is a good place for me as a player and person.

"After meeting with the academic department and my dudes coach Chev and coach Hagan, it made me feel more confident about making the move to Boulder. Everything was genuine."

Broussard plays all over the field for Bishop Lynch H.S. and totaled 2,478 yards and 23 touchdowns his junior season. He lines up at outside receiver, in the slot, takes handoffs, and is stellar in the return game.

"I'm coming in as a running back, but I'm an athlete that will be used all over the field," Broussard said.

Broussard is Colorado's 10th commitment of the 2018 class.
