Breaking down the Buffs’ 2022 class

·1 min read

A spry group of 19 signed their letters of intent on Wednesday to form the Colorado Buffaloes’ class of 2022. The group, which is currently ranked 6th in the Pac-12 by 247Sports, is Karl Dorrell’s second of his two-year tenure in Boulder.

All 19 signees were ranked as three-star recruits, but that wasn’t exactly an abnormality in this year’s Pac-12 recruiting class.

Dorrell said his work likely isn’t done, however, as he plans on beefing up a few position groups. Colorado has already sent offers to a few other recruits in recent days.
