Dunston Excited for Future at Colordao

The 6-1, 180-pound wide receiver had a big offseason that included a trip to Colorado's Junior Day, and eventual verbal commitment to the Buffaloes.

The high school football season is now upon us, and West Hills (CA) Chaminade wide receiver Elijah Dunston, will be a key member on one of Southern California's top teams.

"It's always great to finally go against other people," Dunston said of the upcoming season. "We have been practicing a lot, and putting in a lot of hard work, so it's nice to see some new faces."

The 6-1, 180-pound wide receiver had a big offseason that included a trip to Colorado's Junior Day, and eventual verbal commitment to the Buffaloes.

"When I went out there it was really nice. They didn't offer me before I went there cause it was just Junior Day," Dunston said. "But after that is when they started talking to me, and I already knew that it was the place for me to be."

Dunston has heard several positive things about the Colorado program from his close friend, Stephan Nembot, who is a freshman defensive lineman for the Buffs.

"He says he really likes it. There are a lot of things that he says he enjoys. It's a nice campus and football program," said Dunston. "We are rebuilding but we are going to be where we need to be."

Dunston has flown under the radar a bit, but at 6-1, with good speed, he has the potential to have a breakout senior season.

"I feel like I have improved from working hard with my coaches. I have been working on route running and a lot on footwork," he said. "I have just been focusing on little things to get better for the next level.

"My strengths would have to be my catching ability and speed. I am kind of working on my agility, cause I'm trying to be the ultimate player."

The talented receiver wants to take an official visit to Colorado and doesn't have any plans to visit other schools at this time.

"I will visit Colorado for sure," Dunston said. "Everything is just a blur."
