Colorado adds wide receiver to 2011 class

There are still a few players out there still available to be signed to a scholarship in the class of 2011 and days after Ole Miss added a cornerback, Colorado picked up DeSoto (Texas) wide receiver Austin Vincent as a late addition to their recruiting class.

"The atmosphere at Colorado is really nice and the coaching staff is great," Vincent told BuffStampede.com. "I think I am going to have a good time up here."

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound receiver took an official visit to see the campus in Boulder and will head back to join the team for summer workouts in late June. Several schools were interested in Vincent and he originally planned to sign with Iowa but was a late qualifier.

UTEP, Kansas and Oklahoma State were among the schools that showed interest once he received a qualifying score but it was Colorado that came out on top.

"I did research on Colorado and looked at the roster and their depth chart and their coaching staff," he said. "They don't have that many receivers. They have a big time sophomore (Paul Richardson), a senior that is going to play in the NFL (Toney Clemons) and a transfer from Georgia (Logan Gray) at receiver. They are expecting me to play, too. They are expecting me to come in and compete. I just have to do my thing."

Buffalos' receivers coach Bobby Kennedy, a former assistant at Texas, was key in getting Vincent to head to the north.

"I already had a relationship and knew Coach Kennedy, who is going to be my position coach at Colorado, before when he was at Texas," Vincent said. "He is really the main reason I decided to visit Colorado and was a big reason why I committed. I am real cool with Coach Kennedy."

Due to NCAA rules with the signing period over, Vincent will not sign a letter of intent and can only sign scholarship grant-in-aid papers. He broke his leg last season but scored six touchdowns on just 16 catches prior to the injury.

Vincent is the 22nd commitment for Colorado in 2011 and third wide receiver to join the Buffs.
