Colorado Prep, K Zach Grossnickle, Commits to the Buffs

Once again, like TE DaVaughn Thornton, we expected K/P Zach Grossnickle to pull the trigger today. That has happened according to rivals.com. The Buffs have now signed their 5th in-state prospect and hopefully, fill a big void in their kicking game. Not many things frustrated Colorado fans more last year than the disappointing special teams performance. The Buffs missed more field goals than they made, punting wasn't exactly superb and kickoffs were very erratic. Hopefully, Grossnickle can be the solution to the Buffs problems in all three areas. That is what makes Zach valuable and why CU was interested in him. Colorado has more than their share of kicker/punters on scholarship so trying to address all the issues with one stone was imperative. Scout.com really likes what Grossnickle brings to the table, ranking him the 10th best kicker in the country and #1 in the state of Colorado. This is the Buffs 13th verbal of the 2009 recruiting class and the second verbal of the day.

Here is the breakdown of Zach Grossnickle that we did earlier in the week.

Congrats to the staff and Zach for the commitment. Go Buffs! This is defintely a thing the Buffs needed to address and I know this will make our reader, justmyop, very happy.
