Alex Kinney, he of the booming leg, is now a Colorado Buffalo! He looks to immediately replace Darragh O'neil (though he is irreplacable in our hearts) and make an instant impact. Welcome aboard, Alex! Read his bio or watch his film at

Notes: From Rivals ($): "First of all [Kinney] is a combo player. He has the ability to do both at a very high level. I think that punting is currently actually his strength. He shows just tremendous potential at the punting position. He's actually currently ranked No. 3 [in punting] in the country with us and to be honest with you he could easily be ranked No. 1. There's a very slight difference between him and the top two guys. Overall, he's by far a top national prospect at the punting position. He has a huge ceiling; he has a huge potential and ability. Colorado definitely got one of the best punting prospects in the country," Sailer said.
