UB's passing game gets Weiser! Matt Weiser commits to UB

Bud_mediumA new addition to the UB 2010 Class:

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. -- Rodney McKissic Buffalo News

This is a welcome addition to a team that is losing two tight ends this season (Marr and Brey). It will also be nice to add a solid receiving tight end to an offense that could use every weapon possible to avoid a repeat of 2010. ESPN praises his catching ability:

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. .

The Tight end from Robesonia, Pennsylvania has some work to do as a blocker

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.-- ESPN

Weiser was recently named second team all state (AAA) by and chose buffalo over an offer from Toledo and interest from Bowling green and Virginia.
