No.1 College Transfer From Mexico Commits to D1 Program
The road is long for a college transfer student looking for an opportunity at the division 1 level of football. It's been an even longer road for Diego Gonzalez as college transfer from Mexico. The hard work and dedication he's put in over the years has finally paid off with an offer from the coaching staff at Colorado. Gonzalez accepted without hesitation and is expected to report to the University of Colorado this weekend to prepare for camp.
Gonzalez earned a No.1 college transfer ranking as a kicker with Kohl's Kicking Camps early on in his pursuit of a scholarship in the states in 2011. He's also ranked as a No.5 punter as a college transfer. His dedication and showing at ranking events made it apparent he could contend at the Division 1 level of football in America. A program that would put in the work to bring a international college transfer on board was the only thing stopping him.
Jamie Kohl, Director of Kohl's Kicking Camps, commended the staff at Colorado.
"I credit the Colorado compliance department and the Colorado coaches for working hard to give Diego a chance. Diego is a great young man who now has a great chance to control his football future," said Kohl.
"It's very nice to see a deserving kicker get a chance at a BCS school. I am happy for Diego and his father. They've worked very hard for this opportunity."
