Three-star center Xavier Newman flipped his commitment to the Colorado Buffaloes from the Texas Longhorns.


One day after he backed off his pledge to Charlie Strong’s Longhorns, 3-star recruit Xavier Newman flipped his commitment to Colorado.

The DeSoto, Texas prospect originally committed to Texas in April, but decommitted from the Longhorns on Monday after taking an official visit to Colorado for its 40-16 win over Arizona State this past weekend.

Roughly 24 hours after he left Texas’ 2017 class, Newman decided to be a Buffalo and released a statement regarding the decision.

“I would like to thank God, my parents, and [my] coaches for supporting me. I have prayed about this and took my time with this decision. For the next four years, I will continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Colorado.”

The Longhorns dropped from No. 32 to No. 37 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings with seven total commits remaining. On the flip side, Mike MacIntyre’s team, which had replaced Texas as the No. 32 recruiting class when Newman decommitted, now sits at No. 30 in the 2017 recruiting rankings with 19 total commits.

Newman is the fourth offensive lineman to join the Buffaloes’ class and the first recruit to commit to Colorado since Aug. 2.

A versatile player in the trenches, Newman is tenacious and fires off the ball with an intention to bury defensive linemen. He can put an interior rusher on skates if he’s even a fraction too high out of his stance. He’s played offensive tackle before, but his ability to create holes in the run game makes him an ideal fit as an interior offensive lineman.
