Graduate transfer cornerback V.J. Banks to join CSU football

Shoring up a weak spot for CSU football last season, the Rams will add their third graduate transfer of the spring in cornerback V.J. Banks.

Banks revealed on Twitter that he has committed to CSU after spending the last four seasons with Rice University. Banks joins quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels and offensive lineman T.J. Roundtree as graduate transfers coming to Fort Collins this fall.

As a junior in 2016, Banks started 11 of 12 games for the Owls, registering 37 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble. He redshirted during the 2017 season due to injury. In 36 career games with Rice, Banks made 75 tackles, two interceptions and forced one fumble.

As of now, junior Anthony Hawkins and redshirt junior Braylin Scott are the only players with ample experience playing cornerback at CSU. Hawkins transitioned from wide receiver last season and Scott, after missing last season due to legal concerns, will transition back to the cornerback position after playing safety in 2016.
