Colorado Buffaloes land their quarterback

Steven Montez has verbally committed to the Colorado Buffaloes.

Doug Pensinger

Mike MacIntyre has landed his quarterback for the 2015 class. Steven Montez, a 6'5 quarterback out of El Paso, Texas has given his verbal commitment to the Buffaloes shortly after receiving an offer. He currently also holds offers from UTEP, Air Force and New Mexico State and had been hearing a lot from Oklahoma State recently.

Montez completed 66.7 percent last year while throwing for 27 touchdowns (while runnning for 7) and only 3 interceptions. Coaches were impressed with the pro-style quarterback's speed running the ball at a recent camp. We have a lot more to come on Steven, but for now let's say hello to a new Buffalo!

Welcome aboard, Steven!

Notes: From Rivals ($): "Colorado knew I could throw already, it wasn't a question, but I don't think they knew that I am as fast as I am. So I was able to show that to them at the camp. I can run the ball as well so I think that surprised them a little," he said.
