CSU football picks up a pair of verbal commitments

Colorado State football picked up a pair of verbal commitments Monday night, both on the defensive side.

The Rams first received word from cornerback Keevan Bailey, a 3-star athlete out of Salem High School in Conyers, GA., and son of Denver Broncos legend Champ Bailey. Champ and Mike Bobo were teammates at the University of Georgia for two seasons (1996-97) and the relationship appears to have payed off for the Rams in the recruiting cycle.

Listed at 6’1”, 175 pounds, Keevan Bailey currently holds offers from schools in the BIG-10, BIG-12 and SEC according to 247Sports. In 11 games this season, Bailey had 42 total tackles and seven interceptions.

Along with Bailey, the Rams also received a verbal commitment from local defensive end Cian Quiroga (Valor Christian High School). The 6’2”, 220-pound defensive end had 74 tackles this season, 23 of which went for a loss.

In the 5A state title game, Quiroga sacked Cherry Creek quarterback and Iowa commit Alex Padilla three times in Valor Christian’s 24-14 victory. In total, Quiroga reached the quarterback 12 times this season.
