Colorado continues to build its recruiting base in Texas, and on Tuesday night, the Buffaloes landed yet another prospect from the Lone Star State.

Aaron Austin, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound defensive lineman from North Crowley High School in Fort Worth, announced his verbal commitment to CU for the class of 2022.

Austin is the 10th player to commit to CU for the 2022 class and the sixth from Texas.

Recruited mainly by defensive coordinator/defensive line coach Chris Wilson, Austin took an official visit to CU the weekend of June 25. He also visited SMU last month.

Rated a three-star prospect by 247Sports.com and Rivals.com, Austin has 20 total offers, including from Arizona, Boston College, Illinois, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, Nebraska and Washington State.

Last season, Austin helped the North Crowley Panthers to a 7-4 record. He was named all-district after recording 48 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, nine sacks, three forced fumbles and four pass breakups.

Austin joins a CU class that also includes: tight end Zach Courtney (Post, Texas); safety Dylan Dixson (Pearland, Texas); quarterback Owen McCown (Rusk, Texas); running back Victor Venn (Buford, Ga.); offensive lineman Carter Edwards (Hattiesburg, Miss.); linebacker Kaden Ludwick (Clackamas, Ore.); and cornerbacks Ronald Lewis (New Orleans), Keyshon Mills (Little Elm, Texas) and Joshua Wiggins (Klein Oak, Texas).
