Colorado State adds commitment from Louisiana prep running back Darius May

Colorado State added its second running back commitment of the 2016 class, when McDonogh 35 (LA) prep star Darius May announced his intentions to sign at CSU on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.



May, who committed to Tulane last May, visited CSU last week along with six other potential prospects, including two players already committed to CSU for 2016. He is rated as a two-star prospect by recruiting service and held offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Tulane and Western Kentucky. 

Rashaad Boddie, CSU’s other running back commitment, pledged to the Rams on Sept. 18, and CSU could add one or two more running backs to the class depending on any attrition at the position. 

CSU now has 18 players committed for the 2016 class, including four who have already signed their National Letter of Intent and are enrolled in the classes this spring. 

Because of NCAA rules, coaches are prohibited from commenting on student-athletes until they have signed a financial aid agreement with the school. 

Feb. 3 is the first day for football recruits to sign their spring National Letter Intent.
