CSU Excitement Growing

NCAA Football: Colorado State at San Diego State Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

As the 2017-18 football season begins at Colorado State University there are many thing Ram fans are looking forward to such as the new stadium on campus, the returning talent, but most of all - the new faces that head coach Mike Bobo and his staff have brought to Fort Collins.

Regarded as one of the best recruiting classes with Bobo at the helm, and overall in program history, the Rams have added a lot of skill on both sides of the football to complement their existing roster.

Most recently the Rams have added three-star commit Jamal Houston from Marrero, California. The six-foot-two wide receiver also received offers from many power-five schools before ultimately choosing CSU.

The Rams have also gone a route well known to their program by recruiting many Junior College players from across the country as well as acquiring transfers from other NCAA programs. One such transfer to note is safety Jordan Fogal who will be immediately eligible with two years of eligibility as a grad-transfer from the University of Utah.

Other notable commits for the Rams this off-season are a pair of defensive-back, three-star recruits in the form of Nick Martin-Morman, and Devonta Wilson.

Martin-Morman is out of Archbishop Hannan in Covington, Louisiana, and he was the Rams first and possibly most firm commit of the 2018 class. And Davonta Wilson hails from Miami Central High School, a school that has produced quite a few NFL stars including Willis McGahee, Devonte Freeman, and Dalvin Cook.

All-in-all, it has been a good recruiting cycle for the Rams football program, bringing in more big names than the past few seasons, which has added to the excitement of this up-coming season which may already be one of the more anticipated seasons in CSU history for many reasons.

As with all recruiting classes, though, the true grading comes two to three years down the road when these players get on the field and truly start to contribute for CSU. That process started last week as the Rams opened up Fall Camp July, 28
