The Colorado Buffaloes, for the second straight year, will not go after another quarterback in the recruiting class after nabbing one commitment. The Buffs will be happy to stay put with just one in-coming QB for the second straight year, and it could be all for the better.
Last year in the 2012 recruiting class, the Buffaloes received a commitment from Shane Dillon, and they told him that he would be the only quarterback taken by CU in the 2012 class.
The Colorado Buffaloes have done the same this year with QB Sefo Liufau and have told him that he will be their only quarterback to sign with CU in this 2013 recruiting class. Liufau is an extremely talented dual-threat quarterback who is a four-star recruit and can actually play safety as well, but there is no doubt that he is a quarterback at this stage.
Sefo Liufau is 6’4″, 220 pounds, runs a 4.85 forty, benches 215, has a 4.5 shuttle time, and he owns a 27-inch vertical. Liufau is just such a great quarterback, and the Tacoma recruit is one of the top ten dual-threat QBs in the 2013 class. He is the second best recruit in the state of Washington and one of the top 50 in the region.
Overall, the Buffaloes got a big time QB in Sefo Liufau, and he is the only one they need to take with his overall ability. The fact that they were able to get him in mid-April before Oregon, Stanford, and in-state powerhouse Washington could offer is huge for them. Colorado is showing that he is the only one they need to bring on due to his overall talent, and it is true; they only need Liufau.
He is a raw prospect at this point, but he has so much potential and is a better pure passer than people give him credit for. Colorado Buffaloes head coach Jon Embree did a great job in getting the top passer to commit, and he has also done a great job in making sure he is and feels like “the guy”. It will be fun to watch him develop in Boulder and see what Embree and the coaching staff can do with all that raw potential.
