Bulls recruits prepare for All-Star game

--Nine members of the incoming recruiting class will finish their prep careers with a chance to play in postseason all-star games. Of the nine signees, three players are scheduled to play in the 30th Eddie Meath All-Star Football Game which features the best players in Western New York. Participating in the game are offensive lineman Jaden Cotton, athlete Jordan Johnson, wide receiver Marcus McGill.

--Buffalo announced a $1 million gift to the athletic department from former Bulls hockey player Tunney Murchie and his family. The donation, one of the largest single commitments in Buffalo history, will be used toward projects in UB Stadium and Alumni Arena, including a new entrance to the football office center. Construction on other multi-purpose spaces begin later this year.

SPRING MOVERS

WR Cordero Dixon -- The Bulls were heavily hit by graduation at the wideout position and Dixon managed to step up. Dixon and fellow sophomore Devon Hughes will duke it out for the No. 2 receiver role behind Alex Neutz.

QB Joe Licata -- Licata didn't leave spring as the top quarterback option, but he took the majority of the snaps with the first team and has a slight edge over Alex Zordich because of his accuracy.

LB Lee Skinner -- Skinner moved up the depth chart simply because of his grasp of the new defense under first-year coordinator Lou Tepper. Sophomore Khari Brown also developed nicely in what should be an interesting competition at inside linebacker alongside Jaleel Verser.

LB Khalil Mack -- Sure he's the team's top defensive player but Quinn says he's bigger, stronger and more disruptive than a year ago when he was a first-team All-MAC selection. That's scary.

QUOTE TO NOTE
"Competition is going to be a part of it all the time, especially at the quarterback position. Accept it. You've got to love it and get better from it." -- Junior quarterback Alex Zordich.
