The Colorado Buffaloes have added a bit more depth to their cornerback room.
For the second week in a row, the Buffs have shifted a young receiver to defense. Redshirt freshman Dylan Thomas has made the switch and practiced at corner for the first time on Thursday.
A week ago, true freshman Tarik Luckett made the move from receiver to corner and has been praised by head coach Mel Tucker for making plays on defense in practice.
CU had four cornerbacks transfer out of the program after spring practices and came into preseason camp on Aug. 1 with only five corners on scholarship. With the latest moves, they now have seven corners on scholarship.
Thomas, who is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, redshirted last season.
Among a deep group of receivers, including several veterans, Thomas was unlikely to get much playing time on offense. He now joins a group of corners that includes only three players that have appeared in a college game. Thomas is one of four freshmen in the cornerback room.
