Stancil heads north

Chesterfield (Va.) Cosby cornerback CJ Stancil made his decision over the weekend. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder made his second trip north to Buffalo and left with a decision in place.
"Well, I went to an event called the Bulls barbeque," he said. "I got to go up and chill with the coaches and their facilities, tour the campus, football field and then we ate lunch after that.
"The head coach talked to each one of us individually about committing or not and I just committed. They were very ecstatic and pretty excited."
