"I am excited about being a Buffalo," Thomas Perez exclaimed after signing his papers this afternoon. "This will be my first experience being away from home. I am going there on January 16th. I will send in my papers tomorrow morning. My mom is real proud of me. She is so happy that I came back and will be playing division one football after not having the grades out of high school. I am looking forward to going in there and competing right away. They need a bigger back like me."
He was named second team all-conference this fall after rushing for 928 yards and 11 touchdowns. "I missed two and a half games with an ankle injury."
What kind of back is CU getting? "I am a big back and an every down back. I am quick when I need to be and nobody can catch me in the open field."
