    According to the camp roster.

    Vigo actually played OLB in high school, so it was always a bit bizarre that he was recruited to CU as a cornerback.

    I like this move and think it was long overdue. He wasn't going to make an impact at CB or S, so this gives him an opportunity. Also, it upgrades team speed and adds depth to a LB position that is going to graduate 2 great players after this year.

    Hard to believe that Vigo is still only a junior.

    He was one of the DBs who got suspended last season. Moten, Orms, Vigo and Olatoye all got booted for a while. Only Deji failed to make it back.

    He's still only listed at 6'1" 200lbs, unless he has done some major growing since I saw him last year I doubt both those numbers so he is is very small to play LB. He might be able to contribute against some teams that play a spread or who use a TE who more WR than TE. In those cases Vigo could give you a guy who is comfortable in coverage but still physical enough to compete if they try to switch it up and run the ball occasionally. Against more standard offenses he will be smaller than some of the ballcarriers much less the guys blocking for them.

    His best contributions might be as a coverage guy on special teams. He seems to be tough and willing to mix it up but he just isn't a PAC level athlete, like a lot of the guys Hawk brought in.

    I like it because it means the coaches feel comfortable using the frosh at those positions. Not sure we will ever see him on the field at any position at this point.

    I figure he'll play special teams to start the year until one of the new signees or walk-ons shows they can contribute and wins a spot. If he figures in to the defensive rotation at all it'll mean we're in trouble. Not a knock on Paul, but that's not the new standard for Embree or the PAC.

    Guy who wasn't going to get playing time moving to another position where he isn't going to get playing time. Meh is the right answer to this.

    Biggest effect may be to have a faster guy at LB to practice against.
