Buffaloes Receive A Commitment From Texas Tight End Vincent Hobbs

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!

Notes: From Rivals ($):
"Hobbs, who stands 6-foot-4, 240-pounds, earned first-team all-district honors after catching 45 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games as a senior. ranks Hobbs as the nation's 31st best tight end recruit and among the top 80 prospects in Texas from the Class of 2012.

"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."
