When Shane Dillon returned from his recent Colorado trip the El Cajon (Calif.) Christian pro-style quarterback had nothing but glowing reviews for the place but wanted to wait things out through the spring to see where his recruitment was headed.
A week or so later, Dillon decided he had seen enough and the four-star quarterback committed to the Buffaloes.
"True," Dillon replied via text message when asked Thursday morning if he had made his pledge to Colorado.

Dillon is the fourth commit in Colorado's class joining defensive tackle Tyler Henington, linebacker Clay Norgard and running back B.J. Catalon. Rivals.com rates the El Cajon Christian quarterback No. 227 in the 2012 class.
"It was awesome," Dillon recently said about his Colorado visit.
"It is definitely a school that's high on my list right now. My brother got to go with us and my dad and they loved it, too. They just made us feel really at home there and it was cool."
Arizona, Cincinnati, Florida State, Ohio State and Vanderbilt have also offered Dillon, who threw for 2,982 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his junior season. He had 402 passing yards and four scores in his sophomore year. USC and others were showing interest.
Early on, Dillon, one of the better quarterbacks at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp, said he planned to go on the George Whitfield Rock Tour this summer and then make his decision sometime around August or September.
But Dillon found everything he wanted at Colorado and decided to end things even before the summer camp circuit.
