Matt was named Mr. Football in the state of South Carolina, past winners include Marcus Lattimore, Jadeveon Clowney, and Stephon Gilmore. Kind of a big deal. Colburn commited to the Cardinals back in June and is a 3-star prospect according to all 3 major scouting services. The 5’9, 185 lbs Running Back led his Dutch Fork (Irmo, SC) squad to the 4-A State Title game.
Matt rushed for 1705 yards and 27 Touchdowns as a senior. Last year as a junior Colburn put up HUGE numbers in 13 games carrying 294 yards for 2289 yards (7.8 ypc) and 36 TDs to go along with 22 receptions for 341 yards and 2 TDs.
Colbun was also a big component for Dutch Fork as a sophomore running for 1444 yards on 188 carries (7.7 ypc) and 24 TDs. In his high school career Matt tallied 5637 yards rushing and 91 Touchdowns OR 6543 yards for 95 TDs all-purpose. Sickening.
Matt chose Louisville over an offer from Marshall and was recruited by Tony Grantham.
