Buffalo Bulls Recruiting Wide Receivers

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Bulls have been mainly a one receiver team since graduation broke of the combination of Naaman Roosevelt and Brett Hamlin. Some of this may be owed to the turnover at quarterback but even with Joe Licata stabalizing the position UB has struggled to get solid games out of two receivers.

This past Season Fred Lee and Alex Neutz had great games, but seldom together. More troubling for UB is that both receivers are graduating. There is going to be a lot of relatively unproven youth competing for receiving spots next season and there could be openings for a freshman to make an impact.

To that end Buffalo is bringing in two receivers from Ohio.

Jackson-Daniel also had offers from Kent State, Old Dominion and St. Francis according to  Jarvis Gibson, his teams head coach.


"Nolan and his mom dad made an unofficial visit over the summer. Probably the deciding factor was coach (Alex) Wood and how much they liked him. They really enjoyed everything about Buffalo."
Ishmael Hargrove Receiver: Bedford, OH - Saint Peter
Measurables: 6-2/190


Date of Verbal: December 26

- 247 ( 72), #237 Safety, #137 Ohio Prospect

Ishmael Hargrove, a wide receiver and defensive back out of Bedford, Ohio has given a verbal commitment to Buffalo according to 247 sports. Hargrove spent the first three years of his high school career playing for St. Peter Chanel. That school however closed at the end of last school year forcing him to transfer to Glimour Academy.


The 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior has been recruited by Buffalo to play Safety. His new coach Shawn Dodd said Hargrove is a unique combination athlete who will play safety, linebacker and receiver for the Lancers. Meaning if he can be a safety or possibly a future drop linebacker in Lou Tepper's defense.
