Serra linebacker Woodson Greer has committed to Colorado. The Buffaloes scored another huge pickup Monday morning as the program continues to rebuild itself and reshape its program under new football coach Jon Embree. A home visit sealed the deal for Greer who texted Cali High Sports Monday morning saying “I have just committed to the University of Colorado!”
Greer is a huge add to the rebuilding Buffaloes who are moving to the Pac 12 next season. At 6’2 220 pounds Greer has ideal size for an outside linebacker and is a force in the pass rush. He has great speed and can really beat his man around the edge and has a penchant for contact that you can’t teach. Greer is a guy who could come in and contribute right away for the Buffaloes.
"Colorado was a great school overall but the thing that set them apart from the rest was there coaching staff and support system,” Greer told Cali High. “85% of them went to and played for Colorado and a lot of them played in the NFL so they know how the process goes and can relate to me personally,” Greer said.
Greer first reported his commitment to Cali High Sports, similarly to Colorado basketball recruit Spencer Dinwiddie. Including Damiene Cain, the Buffs are now 3-3 on top prospects who inform Cali High Sports of their commitment first.
Greer chose Colorado over offers from Arizona State, San Diego State and Michigan.
