The Colorado Buffaloes have received their third tight end commitment in the 2012 class after Vincent Hobbs pledged to head to Boulder. Hobbs, from Mesquite, Texas, has only played a single season at the tight end position and even then was split out from the line almost 75% of the time. Prior to that he played the wide receiver position and is a more developed pass catcher than most that play the position. Jon Embree has gotten a guy with a huge upside and added to an already stellar tight end class.
Welcome aboard Vincent!

"He is a very, very athletically gifted tight end," Webb said. "He is tremendously polished as a receiver because that is really what he played as a sophomore and junior."
