Max Borghi, one of the top football players in the Class of 2018, committed to the University of Colorado on Thursday night.

Borghi, a running back, announced his decision in a video on Twitter:

An electric presence, Borghi rushed for 824 yards and 15 touchdowns last season, and also caught 31 passes for 495 yards and five touchdowns. His season was cut short when he tore his ACL and MCL in his right knee during the playoffs last season.

After the season, he was named first-team all-state in Class 5A. He was also selected to the first team as a sophomore.

Borghi is also a two-time qualifier to the state track meet. Last season, he anchored Pomona's state-title-winning 4x100-meter relay, and also finished second in the 100 meters, and the 4x200 relay, and was third in the 200 meters.

Borghi joins Valor Christian quarterback Blake Stenstrom and Highlands Ranch safety Ray Robinson as in-state players to commit to CU for 2018.
