Early Signing Period 2018: Hasaan Hypolite is Officially a Colorado Buffalo

The Houston missile makes it official

NCAA Football: Northern Colorado at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes, you just need to hit somebody on defense. You need to send a message in the most direct way possible. There is no one more suited for the job than Hasaan Hypolite.

Hypolite plays for Hightower High School just outside of Houston. He is the only recruit from the area in the 2018 class, but he represents the city well. In high school, he played linebacker, but he is expected to move to safety for CU. Or, in my opinion, he is the perfect fit for the Buffbacker.

There may not be a more fun highlight tape in this class. Everyone he hits moves noticeably backward. He reads the ball and flies to it. He finishes every play through the whistle. His play should remind you of a safety fresh in the minds of the CU faithful - Ryan Moeller. He plays close to the line of scrimmage in the same way. If Hypolite can contribute as much as Moeller did in his career, CU has got himself a steal. The nice thing is, Hasaan is already built like a grown man. He can contribute immediately on special teams, and once he learns the position, he will impose his will on the opposing team.

Welcome, Hasaan!
