This is all you need to know to understand how good Conrad Obi was this spring. Fellow defensive tackles Curtis Cunningham and Will Pericak each played nearly 1,200 combined snaps over the past two seasons and Obi finished the spring rated higher in coaches' minds. Obi is No. 2 on our list of the best Buffs of spring ball and we had a tough time not making him No. 1.

Conrad Obi graduated from high school in Grayson, Ga., on May 24. Five days later he was in Boulder to get settled in and begin working out with his new Colorado teammates. "I love Boulder. I made the right choice," he said after Thursday morning's practice. (Also inside, notes from the practice.)
