Colorado Buffs recruiting commit: Chris Miller, Texas athlete

+

The Colorado Buffaloes coaching staff is certainly on a roll. Miller becomes the fifth commit in June, when the class doubled in size. He ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash with a 40.2-inch vertical leap at The Opening regional in March in Dallas. At the end of the camp his scores had him with the fourth overall rating among players in attendance. He earned first-team all-district on both side of the ball as a junior.

Oregon Ducks recruiting commit: Sampson Niu, San Diego linebacker

+

The hot streak for Oregon continues as they land 3* ILB Sampson Niu. This is a huge pickup for the Ducks because of the extensive offer list Niu boasts. He has offers from USC (which were the favorites about a month ago), Michigan, Notre Dame, and Washington. His recruitment exploded during February as he picked up 11 offers in two weeks. Oregon came late to the party and offered Niu in April, but that didn’t matter.

Washington football recruiting commit: Ariel Ngata, Folsom LB

+

Ariel plays both outside linebacker and defensive end for Folsom which should allow him to make a smooth transition to UW as he says he is being recruited as a hybrid, stand up pass rusher, Buck-type player. He had an impressive junior season in 2015, racking up 80 total tackles and 4 sacks.

Oregon State football recruiting commit: Quantino Allen, Florida WR

+

With Victor Bolden graduating after this coming season, Allen fits into the succession plan as a slot receiver. At 200 lbs., he has surprising size on a 5'9" (the same height as Bolden) frame, and excellent speed as well, which are a good combination from the slot.

USC Trojans recruiting commit: Daniel Green, Portland linebacker

+

Washington football recruiting commit: Ty Jones, Provo WR

+

Jones originally committed to the Utes back in July of last year, but backed off of that pledge a couple of months ago to explore other options after a slew of new offers came in. Washington swooped in and quickly became one of Jones' leaders. Location and the upward trajectory of the program are what sold Ty on the Huskies. He loved the city of Seattle and was excited about the prospect of catching passes from a quarterback like Jake Browning.

ASU football reported commit: Frank Darby, 2016 WR

+

The addition of Darby at wideout addresses a key need for Graham and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey, who saw Devin Lucien, D.J. Foster, and Gary Chambers all graduate after the 2015 campaign. He is the first late addition to the class of 2016 for the Sun Devils.

+

Seattle Seahawks take Kenny Lawler with 243rd pick

+

. Kenny Lawler made a name for himself early and often in his Cal career with acrobatic catches. He has some of the best hands I have ever seen at the position and is one of the hardest players in the country to defend near the goal line. Kenny's hands are huge which makes him an easy target for an accurate quarterback, it just so happened that Kenny had number one pick Jared Goff at the helm which made for a lethal combination.
