Still unsure of who the next head coach of the Colorado State Rams will be, the current coaching staff is still working hard trying to convince kids to call Fort Collins home in 2015. Defensive tackle Justin Nunez, from Red Bluff High School in Red Bluff, (northern) California, gave his commitment to the Rams during a visit to the school this previous weekend.

The 6'5", 320 pound defensive lineman has favored the Ram's from the beginning of his recruitment, but kept his recruitment open with interest coming from Oregon and Washington State. Nunez is a big addition to the Ram's recruiting class. After losing in-state defensive lineman Frank Umu from Heritage High School in Littleton, Colorado to the Colorado Buffaloes, Colorado State was in need to find a new defensive tackle.

After watching film provided on Hudl there are a couple things I took away from it. First off, Nunez big, and I mean real big. Unfortunately, he plays high which allows him to get to pushed back from time to time. Fortunately, working with the coaching staff will help with lowering his pad level. Nunez has a good motor and doesn't give up on plays, whether on offense or defense, and can be seen making multiple plays past the line of scrimmage. With his size and motor, and the fact that he can play either side of the ball, Nunez has the potential to be a contributor for the Rams over the next five years.

Being only the 7th player to commit to the Rams in the 2015 recruiting class, Colorado State is in need of more quality players to pledge to play for the Rams. Whoever is named as the new head coach will surely have a big impact on recruiting.
