Two verbals for UB football

The UB football team received commitments from two players recently: Devon Hughes, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound wide receiver from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., and James Potts, a 5-11, 175-pound tailback from American Heritage School in Delray Beach, Fla.

Potts is a three-star recruit according to who received offers from Memphis, Michigan State, Indiana, Northern Illinois and Vanderbilt among others according to the recruiting website. Hughes is also a three-star recruit and scouts feel the Bulls got a sleeper.

“I committed to the University of Buffalo,’’ Hughes told Rivals. “Me and my family just feel like it’s a good situation for me. It’s a positive opportunity and I just feel that it's a good fit. They throw the ball, I'll have an opportunity to play as a freshman and academically it's a great school.”
