Buffaloes receive commitment from Junior College long snapper

Wyatt Smith will fill the role soon to be vacated by the graduation of Ryan Iverson.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Buffaloes have landed a new commitment the day after their final home game of the 2013 season according to Adam Munsterteiger of Buff Stampede. Long snapper Wyatt Smith out of Gulf Coast Community College has given his pledge to the Buffs and will be receiving a full ride. Long snapper isn't normally a position that gets fans super excited but it's an important one nonetheless. Ryan Iverson only has one more game as a Buffalo and Smith should step right in and assume the role. Smith will have 3 seasons to play 2 and was rated the No. 2 long snapper in the country according to one expert.

Smith becomes the sixteenth commitment in the Buffaloes 2014 class.

Welcome aboard, Wyatt!

"Colorado is Pac-12 football," Smith told in a recent interview. "Looking back to the history of college football, that is one of the most winningest programs. The fact it is a bigger program is definitely appealing. They have a great new staff set in place that I think is going to win some games here in the near future. They seem like great coaches."
