Bobo Solid With Buffs

The Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak receiver, Bryce Bobo, talks about his official visit to Colorado...

Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak receiver Bryce Bobo was one of the first receiver commits to Colorado back early in the year.

But when Jon Embree was fired, Bobo said he was still committed to the Buffs yet still open to all options.

Then Colorado hired San Jose State coach Mike MacIntyre.

A couple of talks with a former Charter Oak linebacker Keith Smith, who starred for MacIntyre with the Spartans calmed any concerns Bobo may have had.

"I talked with Keith a little when they hired Coach MacIntyre and he said nothing but great things about him," said Bobo.

Bobo got a chance this weekend on his official visit to get his own impression of MacIntyre.

"He's a great guy and he's really funny and we got along really good," said Bobo. "He's a really good leader. He told me that Keith was a real leader and a big impact player for him and they are hoping the same from me coming out of Charter Oak."

Bobo said the visit confirmed that Colorado was where he's supposed to be.

"I'm set on Colorado," said Bobo.

He enjoyed his time while in Boulder.

"It was real nice, the coaches are nice and me and all the recruits got along," said Bobo. "It was the first time I've ever been to Colorado. When I first got there and got outside, the air hit us and it was cold, but I got used to it. It's so nice there. Everything looks brand new and there are a lot of friendly people. The stadium was nice, the weight room and study room were cool and all so close to the field."

Bobo was hosted by Jeffrey Thomas but spent time with a lot of Southern California players.

"I knew Paul Richardson, Marques Mosley, Donta Abron and Christian Powell," said Bobo. "I played against them my junior year (the latter three from Upland)."

Bobo said the coaches would like him to play early.

"They want me to come in this summer and get classes started and get to know the playbook and learn the system pretty fast and come in and play right away," said Bobo.
