UCLA TE Matt Lynch Transfers to Colorado

Karl Dorrell is emphasizing the tight end position

NCAA Football: UCLA at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The apparent mass exodus from UCLA to Colorado continues. After taking their most successful coach in the past 20 years (hot take, fight me), Karl Dorrell, and their leading receiver in 2012, Taylor Embree, AND their best recruiter in the past decade, Demetrice Martin, CU has now taken a player from the UCLA Bruins:

Matt Lynch has obvious local connections. He starred as a quarterback for Legacy High School in Broomfield. After escaping the state to play for UCLA, he moved from QB to tight end to get on the field and take advantage of his 6’5 frame. His quest for playing time in the Pac-12 has now led him to the Colorado Buffaloes, who badly need tight end depth. Lynch will provide nice size and senior leadership for a group that needs experience. He is also a walk-on for the Buffs, so he won’t use a scholarship for his last year.

Welcome, Matt!
