Colorado signs WR to replace Paul Richardson

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Mike MacIntyre's second class of recruits at Colorado includes wide receiver Shay Fields, whom he compares to NFL-bound Paul Richardson, nine other California kids — and his own son, Jay, a multi-talented athlete who chose the Buffaloes over Wyoming.

Jay MacIntyre rushed for 696 yards and 14 touchdowns and threw for 986 yards and 12 TDs as a senior at Monarch High School in Louisville, Colo.

He also had six touchdown returns on special teams and broke up 16 passes at cornerback to go with three interceptions, one of which was a pick-6.

Unlike former Buffs coach Dan Hawkins, whose son, Cody, played quarterback for him at CU — which harmed his recruitment of quarterbacks — MacIntyre's son won't play quarterback for the Buffaloes.

He's listed as an "athlete."
