Reinforcements Are Coming, Buffaloes Freshmen Begin To Arrive

The 27-player class that Jon Embree and the Colorado Buffaloes signed back in February of this year will be absolutely crucial to the success of this team. That statement could be true for almost all D-I college football programs, but what is unique to the Buffs is the contribution levels that Colorado is going to need this year. Embree is still working to restock the depth in this program, but before he can do that he needs to find a quality one and two-deep that he just does not have on campus right now.

Embree has said that up to three-fourths of the incoming freshman class could see the field in the 2012 season and, for many of these players, he's not just talking about special teams. While organized fall practice won't begin until August, the summer workouts and seven-on-sevens will play a huge role in the Buffaloes success next year. The sooner they can begin the better.

Thanks to the great team over at Buff Stampede, we now have arrival dates for most of the incoming freshman class. If you want to catch up on who to keep an eye on this fall, revisit our signing day recap discussion.
