Another in-state prospect will be staying home as ThunderRidge offensive lineman Heston Paige has committed to play at the University of Colorado.

Paige will be a senior for the Grizzlies this season.

He is the third in-state player to join the Buffs' 2017 recruiting class. Cherry Creek's Jonathan Van Diest and Dante Sparaco both announced their intentions to play at CU in the winter.

Paige received his offer from the Buffs on Thursday and wasted little time in accepting it. He has spent the offseason training for former CU standout Matt McChesney.

The Grizzlies advanced to the Class 5A quarterfinals in 2015 before falling to Cherry Creek 41-7.

Paige's commitment has been added to the recruiting database for the class of 2017.
