    Rivals rating: 3*-5.5rr; unranked K
    Scout rating: 3*; unranked P
    ESPN rating: 3*-75 grade; #13 K
    247s rating: 2*-79 grade; #4 P

    Chris Sailer: #3 Punter... "Alex is an outstanding overall prospect. Punting is a major strength. A great athlete with a huge leg and nice punting frame. Shows big time potential in this area. Also an excellent kicker. Alex is a top national combo prospect. He has a great college future. OFFER NOW!!!"

    Kohl's: #7 Punter... "Alex is a talented combo prospect, he can do all three. He charted well in punting, great hangtime, His FG's are strong but improvement in consistency will really help improve his current kicker ranking. He also shows great potential in KO's, his punting is at the D1 level, should draw a lot of college interest"

    Kinney is also rated as a Kicker (Top 20), so he could do both or either in college.

    No offers. Rivals shows CU interested. 247s shows CSU and Nebraska interested with a Nub unofficial in 2013.

    Apparently Kinney is our next major target.

    Seems to have good size and a good leg. It'd be nice to have one less thing to worry about for 2015 and add another Colorado kid in one fell swoop.

    Dang we didn't even have time to set up another rep contest! Congrats Alex. Hopefully you won't have to punt even once during your CU career :)

    I wouldn´t say that. Surely there will be games when we don´t want to rub salt in the wounds of our fallen victims and we decide to run 3 times with our 4th string RB and 3rd string OL and then punt it away.

    Note there have been no CUin15 sightings on Twitter yet so perhaps it is not completely official yet, but I assume that is just a formality of maybe HCMM not yet speaking to him to officially receive his acceptance.

    Definitely needed as O´Neill has been a big contributor. Nice to get a top 3 punter who also happens to be a Colorado kid. Welcome aboard!

    Spoke to Chris Sailer, he said Kinney committed to CU last night. He said Kinney is ranked as the No. 3 punter by their service but could easily be No. 1 and the difference from 1 to 3 is slight.
