Buffs add another wideout

Former Iowa recruit Austin Vincent has signed a letter of intent to play at Colorado this season. CU offered Vincent a scholarship this spring after he had previously pledged to sign with Iowa but didn't because of questions about his academic eligibility. It turned out, all he needed to do was take his college entrance exams.

Austin Vincent passed the ACT and was offered a scholarship by CU coaches, who sources said believe they were fortunate to land the three-star prospect.

Vincent suffered a broken leg, which shortened his senior season. He was playing well with 16 catches for 327 yards and six touchdown up to that point. It should be noted that Vincent played on a team at DeSoto High School that produced five other college wide receivers in this class.

"It is truly remarkable to have six wide receivers sign in one year," coach Claude Mathis said in a news release and a report by the Dallas Morning News. "It shows the depth, skills and ability of these wide receivers, and the hard work of Coach Simmons and Coach Dodson, that each player can step onto the field and make the big plays."

Vincent is the third wide receiver to be added to the program after national signing day, joining senior Georgia transfer Logan Gray and freshman Tyler McCulloch from Eldorado High School in Albuquerque.

CU signed wide receiver Nelson Spruce from Westlake High School in California on signing day in February.
