I can’t remember the last player I would consider a true “fullback” for the Colorado Buffaloes. Lawrence Vickers was more than that, Christian Powell became a lead back, even George Frazier shifted to the defensive line. Brady Russell plays tight end, Beau Bisharat was a running back, it’s hard to find one until you go back to Brandon Drumm. Now, this player may be more than a fullback, but when you think of what that looks like, Jayle Stacks is who comes to mind.
Stacks is also from Cherry Creek High School in Denver, Colorado, so he is a crowned state champion. He started at RB for the Bruins, and he was plenty explosive as the season went on. He was committed to Air Force until the Buffs came calling, and that was enough for Stacks to switch his decision.
This is what I wrote about Stacks when he committed:
He is a Mike Tolbert clone in the open field. He has soft hands, some nice speed and wiggle, and a whole lot weight he throws around. Jayle is a natural blocker, and will be a great backfield mate for some of the more...nimble members of the backfield. Stacks will also be a huge asset on special teams.
This news should excite Buff fans. CU is going to punish teams.
