Early Signing Period 2018: Deion Smith is Officially a Colorado Buffalo!

The speedster RB makes it official.

NCAA Football: Texas State at Colorado Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Phillip Lindsay is one of the best running backs at CU. But for all of his strengths at CU, he did not have breakaway speed. Deion Smith has that in spades.

Smith is ANOTHER Texas stud, playing at Second Baptist High School in Houston. He was a little nicked up his senior year but should be fully healthy heading into his freshman season in Boulder. Deion has the talent to play right away if he wants.

His tape shows some next-level athleticism and speed. He is just running away from everybody. He runs like a gazelle out there, with long, fluid strides and puts distance down quick. Smith’s legs are so fluid, and his jukes just come so natural. Smth is a pure runner, like he’s just meant to do it.

Welcome, Deion!
