Two weekends ago I spent some time on the University of Minnesota campus to watch the Gophers' prospect camp. A handful of guys stood out during the camp, but most of them I expected. Guys like Evan Hull, Cole Kramer, and Jonathan Mann stood out and were a focus for the Gophers' staff. One more guy who the Gophers' staff put some extra time into was Buffalo's Treyton Welch. I overheard the coaches asking him to spend some time running routes as a receiver and some time showing his coverage skills at corner. Often during one-on-ones, when Mann was set to go – regardless of if it was Welch's turn, the coaches bumped Welch up in line to see the two highly ranked prospects go head to head.

I came away impressed with Welch but with one big question – what position or positions can he play in college? It is a question many college coaching staffs are struggling with – including Big Ten schools.

Last season Welch and the Bison had a season of near misses. They finished 4-5.
