    Colorado Recruiting Class of 2016 – Signed Letters of Intent

    Note … This will be the heading under which the biographies of all of CU’s new recruits will be placed on Wednesday morning. In previous years, much of the CU Recruiting Class has been well known before Signing Day, and there was little excitement on the day itself. Not so this year. Colorado is in the running for several big time recruits with impressive resumes and offer sheets.

    The Ticker” will debut shortly after 7:00 a.m., MT, with time-stamped updates throughout the morning, so you can check for news at a glance. “CU Class of 2016 – Signed Letters of Intent” will provide detailed biographies of the newest members of the Buff Nation.

    Since I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow morning, below is the one new recruit we know for certain will be a Buff next fall. Junior College Kabion Ento has been a Buff for over a month …

    Just the facts … Signed December 16th … Kabion Ento is a 6’3″, 175-pound wide receiver from East Central (Mississippi) Community College. Rivals bio

    What others say about Ento … Ento was considered as a two-star prospect out of high school, but comes to Colorado from the junior college ranks. Ento, 19, played two seasons at East Central (Mississippi) Community College, earned first-team South All-State honors this past fall from the MACJC (Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges). The honor also netted him first-team honors on the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-Region 23 Team.

    Ento will have three years to play two at Colorado.

    CU press release on Ento … “Kabion is tall and rangy, and one of the things he does really well is that he can go up and catch the ball with people around him,” MacIntyre said. “We’re excited about having him join us this spring at the receiver position.”

    As a sophomore, Ento helped ECCC to an 8-3 record under coach Ken Karcher, its best season since 1999 as the Warriors finished year ranked as the No. 10 team in NJCAA. He had 38 receptions for 607 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 16.0 yards per catch; his long play was a 79-yard touchdown against Mississippi Delta. He had 21 receptions for 278 yards (13.2 per) and two scores as a freshman.

    One of his best games this past season came in a 28-19 win over Hinds, when he had six receptions for 106 yards and two scores. He also hauled in five passes for 132 yards and a touchdown in a 46-13 win over Coahoma, and in a 30-14 loss to Mississippi Gulf Coast, he had eight catches for 88 yards and both ECCC touchdowns.

    Ento played a key role in the Warriors to a 35-21 win over No. 20 Kilgore (Texas) College in the Heart of Texas Bowl to close the season. He caught three passes for 44 yards, which included a 38-yard TD catch late in the third quarter that all but sealed the victory.

    He played his prep ball at Dollarway High School in Pine Bluff, Ark., where he was an all-state performer in three sports: football, basketball and track. As a senior, he helped Dollarway to a 13-1 record and the 4A state semifinals in making 30 catches for 650 yards with 12 touchdowns; on defense playing cornerback, he had eight interceptions, two returned for scores, with 15 pass deflections. A three-year starter on both sides of the ball for the Cardinals (he also played some free safety), he had over 1,500 career receiving yards with 13 interceptions. He was the defensive player of the year for the Southeast Arkansas region as a senior.
