Hometown: Sumter, S.C.
Small college standout with outstanding natural talent. Dominating shutdown pass defender who did not allow a reception in 11 of the 20 games he played in for the Pioneers. Heavily recruited coming out of high school, Colclough enrolled at Kilgore (Texas) Junior College to improve his academic standing. In just two seasons at Tusculum, he set school career records with 15 interceptions (138 yards in returns) and 38 passes defended (13 thefts, 25 breakups).
Positives: Great athlete...Fast...Good size...Very quick...Good return man...Physical...Good ball skills.
Negatives: Dominated his level of competition but it will be a quantum leap for him in the NFL in terms of talent...Has all the physical tools you look for.
Steelers Select: Ricardo Colclough
