Half of Buffalo’s signing class will enroll early

After Buffalo’s first bowl-eligible season under head coach Lance Leipold, the Bulls were able to grab 14 new players on the first day of the early signing period.

Buffalo did a fine job getting local talent into the mix, including running back Dylan McDuffie (Buffalo, N.Y.; Sweet Home HS) and quarterback Matt Myers (Buffalo, N.Y.; Bishop Timon HS).

There are a few other commits out there that haven’t signed — like wide receiver Jelani Foster (St. Vincent Pallotti HS), defensive end D’Andre Jenkins (Erie CC) and offensive lineman Gabriel Wallace (St. Andrews College) — but two big JUCO additions to this program include defensive tackle De’Shondrick Foxworth (Jones County CC) and defensive end Atunaisa Vainikolo (Mt. San Antonio).

Half of Wednesday’s signees will enroll to the program in January: Foxworth, Vanikolo, tight end Cole Burnison, linebacker Max Michel, linebacker James Patterson, running back Jaret Patterson and defensive lineman Eddie Wilson.

Below is the list of players who have signed their LOIs with Buffalo. Links go out to their Hudl (or YouTube) pages, Twitter accounts and the videos below each player come from what the school has tweeted out.
