Cormani McClain, the top-ranked cornerback in the 2023 cycle in the 247Sports Composite and No. 12 overall recruit, flipped his commitment from Miami to Colorado on Thursday, according to multiple reports, and all indications are he’ll sign with the Buffaloes when the next signing period begins Feb. 1. Here’s what you need to know:

It’s another huge recruiting win for Deion Sanders, who flipped No. 1 overall recruit in the 2022 cycle, Travis Hunter, from Florida State when he was the coach at Jackson State. Hunter is now at Colorado with Sanders along with his son, star quarterback Shedeur Sanders.

McClain committed to Miami since October but delayed signing with the Hurricanes in December. Multiple Miami coaches went to visit with McClain on Friday, but he wasn’t there to greet them. He was on his way to Colorado for a secret official visit.

By adding McClain, the Buffaloes jumped up 10 spots to No. 29 in the 247Sports Composite high school recruiting team rankings and up three spots to No. 19 in the overall talent acquisition standings when you factor in transfers.
