2022 College Recruiting - 4 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on April 5, 2021
Colorado logo CB Keyshon Mills (Little Elm, TX) commits to Colorado  View Class

After looking at the film, I was a little surprised that Mills (5-11, 182) didn't have more FBS offers, but I think he's a good fit for the Buffaloes and should provide some much needed size and physical play to their secondary. Mills uses his hands ... a lot ... probably too much to be honest, but he doesn't let a bigger receiver get off the line without a bump, a tug or some sort of resistance. He is a tough competitor, primarily good on the boundary, and a player who is willing to get his hands dirty and play against the run. It is hard to say what Mills can do in deeper coverage, and I'd grade his ball skills as about average. Mills has a little upside and should find his way on the field.

Keyshon Mills' Player Grade: C
Colorado logo RB Victor Venn (Buford, GA) commits to Colorado  View Class

What Venn (5-9, 171) lacks in ideal size, he makes up in speed and the ability to get to the corner quickly. He has some scheme versatility, and with proper reps, I think Venn could provide plenty of help in the passing game and as a returner on special teams. But the speed to create home runs is Venn's ticket to success. He can explode through openings, and he accelerates past the second and third level with ease. Once Venn gets behind the defense, there's no catching him. He'll have to add strength and max out his body frame to deal with the increase in physicality. Venn isn't an every-down back, but he's more than a change-of-pace/gadget-type player.

Victor Venn's Player Grade: B-
Colorado logo QB Owen McCown (Rusk, TX) commits to Colorado  View Class

The McCown name should sound familiar. His father, Josh, just finished a long career in the NFL and his uncle Luke played several seasons in the league as well. Owen McCown (6-1, 168) played in North Carolina as a sophomore before moving to Texas as a junior and playing the short season there. He's a developmental player who shows good mobility in and around the pocket and some nice tools. McCown's accuracy is a work in progress, but he's a solid competitor and shown good leadership to take a young team to the Texas state playoffs in his first year as a starter. Add in an NFL pedigree, and there might be something there.

Owen McCown's Player Grade: C+
Colorado logo ATH Anthony Costanzo (Monument, CO) commits to Colorado  View Class
Costanzo already had offers from Colorado and Colorado State, and the in-state prospect decided to make his decision quickly and commit to the Buffaloes. Constanzo (6-2, 195) has been a regular on the Buffaloes' campus since his offer in the spring, so this commitment was not a shock. He's projected to play in the secondary, but of course he could eventually grow into a linebacker given he has two years left of high school. Costanzo in the first member of Colorado's 2022 recruiting class. Anthony Costanzo's Player Grade: C+
