Colorado Prep, TE DaVaughn Thornton, Commits to Buffs

Well, no shocker here. According to scout.com, DaVaughn Thornton (Denver East High School) has committed to the Buffs following his weekend visit in Boulder. That is the 12th commit Colorado has received in the 2009 cycle. Thornton brings good athleticism to the position and some much needed depth as TE Riar Geer and TE Patrick Devenney are both seniors this year. Once again, the Buffs are able to sign another in-state prospect, the fourth of 2009. Thornton has a bunch of upside with good size and basketball player like athleticism. He will need to dedicate himself to the weight room and learn all the blocking & route running techniques that make you an elite prospect at the next level. It should be interesting to see how he develops. The sky is the limit.

Hopefully this is just the start of things to come today. I would expect to hear this news about K Zach Grossnickle shortly.

Here is a breakdown of TE DaVaughn Thornton that we did earlier this week.
