After helping Windsor win the Class 4A state football championship, Corte Tapia has decided he will stay in northern Colorado.

The senior linebacker announced on Twitter Thursday that he has committed to play football at Colorado State University.

In his career at Windsor, Tapia has has amassed 332 tackles with 157 of them coming last year. He proved to be quite the defensive standout in 2015 as he forced five fumbles and recovered three.

He and the Wizards put on a show in the 4A title game last December en route to a 35-14 win over Loveland. Tapia and the defense held the Indians scoreless in the second half as they clinched the state title.

Tapia's commitment has been reflected in the recruiting database for the class of 2017.
