Maurice Bell signs with the Buffs!

The technical WR makes it official

NCAA Football: Nicholls State at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

If you were worried about the receiving corps under Chiaverini, worry no longer. Actually, why were you worried in the first place? That was silly of you. They are in good hands, and those will catch a lot of footballs. Add another huge get to the long list of great players in the #BlackOutBoyz. Maurice Bell is officially a Buff.

Bell, like many Buffaloes, hails from Southern California. He went to Murrieta Valley High School, which plays pretty high level competition among public schools in Cali, and he starred in their explosive offense this year. All of 5’11 and 180 pounds, he fits the Shay Fields mold of receivers, not too tall, but not short either. Put some meat on his bones and he can play inside or outside.

Smooth as butter. He has a long, deceptive stride. Bell will glide right past defenders and his hands let him catch almost everything. He runs cleans routes and can separate early from defenders. As a possession receiver, he can work through the middle of the field or down the boundary and break plays open. He’s just smooth.

Welcome, Maurice!
