Ever since the Colorado Buffaloes joined the Pac-12 they have made a concerted effort to recruit the state of California hard. On Friday, they were rewarded with another commitment from the state as Charter Oak High School wide receiver Bryce Bobo pledged to become a Buff.
Bobo, a 6-foot-2, 175 pound talented wide-out, burst onto the scene with impressive showings at several passing tournaments and earned scholarship offers from Colorado and Idaho. After receiving the offer from CU, Bobo was quick to commit citing the “family” feel that the Colorado football program presented.
“I felt like their football team is really family based,” he said. “All the coaches are really genuine and they made a good first impression with me and my family. They made it seem more at home.”
One of the other reasons that he decided to commit to the Buffs was that he wanted to be part of the rebuilding process at CU as the struggling program attempts to regain national relevance. Another selling point for Bobo was the fact that Colorado’s pro-style offense resembles the offense that he was in at Charter Oak.
Bobo is the eighth commitment for the Buffs and their first wide receiver recruit in their 2013 class. So far they have one four-star recruit (QB Sefo Liufau) and the rest are rated as three stars by ESPN. Bobo is the only committed recruit that is not rated.
Overall it is a good pick up for Colorado. Bobo is not the most highly coveted receiver in this year’s class but head coach Jon Embree and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy obviously see Bobo filling a role on the offense.
