Colorado's in-state football programs are off to a good start with the 2015 class.
Air Force added its first local recruit from the class when defensive lineman Mike DeVries of Centaurus committed to the Falcons this weekend, according to Paul Willis of BoCoPreps.com. It means all three Division I (FBS) football schools in Colorado already have local commits this cycle.
The 6-foot-2, 250-pound DeVries had 23 tackles, including seven for a loss, one sack and 12 hurries last season. He also had an interception, caused a fumble and recovered another for Centaurus, which went 2-7 in Class 3A last year.
DeVries, who also played on the offensive line for the Warriors last season, runs a 4.84 40-yard dash according to his Hudl profile.
He was also a forward for the Warriors' basketball team, and averaged 7.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per game last season.
The in-state colleges are picking up where they left off last cycle. Colorado State had six local recruits in the 2014 class, while Air Force and Colorado both had five.
Colorado has three known local pledges thus far in 2015, while Colorado State has two. Find a complete list of 2015 football recruits in our database.
