Yuri Wright, the nation's No. 100 recruit, has committed to Colorado, sources told MaxPreps.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound cornerback starred at Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) this season. He ranks at the nation's No. 7 cornerback.

Wright had been recruited by Michigan, Notre Dame and Rutgers. However, his recruitment slowed after a story surfaced detailing inappropriate tweets that he sent. Wright was later expelled from Don Bosco Prep.

Along with Elijah Shumate and sophomore Jabrill Peppers, Wright comprised arguably the nation's finest secondary this season. Shumate is on his way to Notre Dame, while Peppers projects as one of the top recruits in the Class of 2014.

Wright immediately becomes the standout recruit in a Colorado haul that also features Westlake (Westlake Village, Calif.) defensive end Justin Solis.

The Buffaloes now have 25 commitments for the class of 2012.
