Weiser commits to UB

Matt Weiser, a 6-4, 220-pound tight end from Robesonia, Pa., today gave a verbal commitment to attend UB a source told The Buffalo News. Weiser's commitment comes a day after the school announced that juco DE/DT Wyatt Cahill signed with the Bulls.

Here's an ESPN.com scouting report on Weiser:

Weiser is a solid target in the passing game. He has solid height and bulk and while he still needs to add more size he should be able to fill his frame out with time in a college weight program. As a receiver he flashes good hands. You would like to see him more consistently catch the ball away from his body, but he does flash the ability to extend his arms and snatch the ball out of the air. He displays good concentration to look the ball in and catch it in a crowd. Will compete for the ball. Displays adequate straight-line speed and looks best suited for the short-to-intermediate passing game. Runs solid routes. After the catch not overly elusive, but displays good balance and can break arm tackles and does a good job of quickly getting turned up-field. Weiser can be a solid and productive target in the passing game, but will need to also be able to contribute as a blocker. He will line up in an in-line position and displays some toughness. Blocking though at this point is a bit of question. Weiser displays that he can contribute some in the passing game and could be a solid addition if he can also produce as a blocker.

Weiser also had an offer from Toledo and drew interest from Virginia and Bowling Green. With Cahill offically in the fold, the Bulls have 16 commitments from the Class of 2011.
