Junior College Running Back Kevon Abrams Maintains High Interest in Buffs

Initially classified as a Class of 2017 Junior College prospect, running back Kevon Abrams is now set to spend an extra semester at Bulter Community College before transferring. Colorado has emerged as the front runner for his services...

The plan is for Kevon Abrams to redshirt this fall and then transfer to his four-year college of choice in January with two to play two. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound running back averaged 116.6 rushing yards per game during his sophomore campaign, which prompted Colorado to extend an offer.

"Colorado is definitely the school that stands out to me with recruiting," Abrams said. "They talk to me the most, that is one of the things I like about them. [Defensive coordinator and outside linebackers] coach [DJ] Eliot is always hitting me up and talking to me and checking in to see how I am doing. Colorado looks pretty good. It would be a good experience to go play in the Pac-12."

Abrams has also received an offer from Georgia State, Louisiana Lafayette, Youngstown State, UNC Charlotte and South Alabama.

"I am going to take two official visits in the fall and I know I am going to take one to Colorado," he said. "Whoever else might offer me before I make a decision, I will probably take an official visit there as well. So I will visit Colorado and whatever other school I think might be a good fit, too."

Originally from Pensacola, Fla., Abrams has benefited from his time at Butler Community College.

"My grades weren't right out of high school, I wasn't a qualifier, so coming to Kansas has been a learning experience," he said. "The coaches here, how they treat the players, and how they want us to be successful in life, not just as a football player, has been great. The coaches are always there to help and I learned from the older guys when I first got here. I've grown a lot as a person."

And between the lines, Abrams has developed into a versatile, downhill runner.

"Coaches say what separates me when they watch me on tape is how I play, how I play every play as if it is my last," he said. "I would say I have good vision out of the backfield."
