Colorado State is continuing their success recruiting their home state. On Wednesday, the Rams received their third Colorado commitment from Heritage High School two-way lineman Frank Umu. Umu is joining fellow Colorado commits Salofi Gaoa, an offensive lineman from Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins and Olabisi Johnson, an athlete from Bear Creek High School in Lakewood, Colorado.

The 6'5", 275 pound lineman from Littleton, Colorado is rated a two-star defensive tackle (per Rivals), however, the Rams like Umu on both sides of the ball, and he is projected as a potential offensive tackle for Colorado State. Whether Umu plays on offense or defense, Umu is a nice get for the coaching staff. He brings size and a frame that can excel on offense or defense, not to mention he is a potential All-Colorado performer on both sides of the ball.

Umu is the fifth commitment for Colorado State this season, and he is the third lineman to sign up to play for the Rams. He joins fellow line commits Gaoa and Colby Meeks from Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando. Javonte Adams, a running back from Fort Worth, Texas, is the fifth commit for Rams.

So far in this year's recruiting cycle, the Rams are showing that they are committed to improving in the trenches. With all of the new offensive weapons that the Rams have added to the team this season, it is not surprising that the coaching staff is investing up front.
