Mitch Rodrigue has done nothing but impress as the offensive line coach from the Colorado Buffaloes. He has taken a solid foundation and turned them into run-blocking, punishing maulers. The Buffs impose their will. Luckily, Edgar Amaya already has plenty of experience in that category. When he signs with the Buffs, he signs as a ready-made bulldozer.
Amaya hails from Alabama, another new state that the Buffaloes have gone to in the 2021 recruiting class. The former Kansas pledge is 6’4 and over 300 pounds already and will play on the interior of the line in college. Here’s what we said about Amaya when he committed:
Amaya is a straight up power player. His tape shows just how mean he can be. Amaya maintains leverage, keeps his arms out, and just bulldozes people. He has enough speed to get around and pull as a guard or a tackle, but that is not where his strength lies. His strength is, well, his strength. Think of how the Buffs just dominated Stanford and UCLA up front. It was not with finesse blocking. They went out and punched those teams in the mouth. Edgar Amaya is very good at punching teams in the mouth.
We knew from the day we saw him on tape, we had to make him a Buff ✔️— Colorado Buffaloes Football (@CUBuffsFootball) December 16, 2020
