"I just committed to Utah State," a happy Colston-Green told Monday morning.

The talented wideout finished up his official visit in the middle of last week and then went home to think about things.

"It's a great opportunity when you look at the roster plus I will have three years to make my mark there," Colston-Green noted. "The coaches were all excited even when I went on the visit so they where very happy today."

As a prep at Leon High School in Tallahassee, Florida, Colston-Green committed to be a preferred walk-on at Oklahoma State and he spent the 2013 redshirting with the Cowboys.

"I was told I wouldn't be able to get a scholarship until my junior year even though I was in the rotation after spring going into fall camp," Colston-Green noted. "I had a close friend of mine that was out (at Arizona Western) and he showed the head coach (Tom Minnick) some clips of me at OSU in practice and I heard that it was a great JUCO program that has scholarships."

As a redshirt freshman last season, Colston-Green totaled 11 receptions for 165 yards and three touchdowns.

"I'm a speedy wide receiver," Colston-Green said matter-of-factly. "I am good in the slot and outside.

"I can turn short routes into long runs and I am a legit deep ball threat with the ability to get in and out of breaks easily and can get off the press consistently.

"This offseason, I am working on getting stronger and faster. I am working on perfecting my route-running with one-on-one sessions three times a week with our quarterbacks and defensive backs."

Colston-Green will enroll at Utah State this summer and he will have three years to play three starting this fall with the Aggies.
