UB Football Announces Recruiting Class of 2011

February 2, 2011 Updated Feb 2, 2011 at 7:16 PM EDT

BUFFALO, NY – (UB) University at Buffalo head football coach Jeff Quinn has announced his initial signees for the 2011 recruiting class on the first day of the National Signing period.
Entering his second season, Quinn added 20 players, including every position, from 10 different states and two provinces in Canada. The class is heavy on line of scrimmage players with a total of eight linemen, five on the offensive side and three on the defensive side. The class also features three defensive backs and a pair of quarterbacks and running backs. Three recruits – Gabriel Barbe, Dillon Guy and Wyatt Cahill – enrolled at UB in January and are on campus now.
“It gives me great pride and excitement to announce this class because of the quality that I belive they will bring to UB both on and off the football field,” said Quinn. “We inked a student athlete at every position so we can balance out our recruiting. Last year we played six true freshmen and I would anticipate members of this class to contribute this fall. I want to give a tremendous amount of credit to our coaches, players, faculty and staff for their time and effort in helping us bring these talented young men to the University at Buffalo.”
