Former UCLA TE Matt Lynch ends up at Colorado

Another tight end gone

NCAA Football: UCLA at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

A three-star QB recruit from the 2016 class, Matt Lynch transitioned to tight end last fall and caught a singular pass, granted it was a touchdown, during the 2019 season.

He has officially landed at Colorado as his transfer destination, heading home as he’s originally from Broomfield, Colorado. It’s unfortunate he didn’t pan out at either of his positions he played while at UCLA but you’ve got to wish him the best.

At this point, he likely serves as a backup plan for new head coach Karl Dorrell in Boulder but could also see the field at tight end as well, if needed.

Lynch represents the third tight end from a season ago to find a new home this offseason after Devin Asiasi chose the NFL and Jordan Wilson also left the program. We wanted some answers as to who would be the No. 1 TE during spring football but, of course, we won’t get them.

UCLA is left with new-scholarship TE Greg Dulcich, Mike Martinez, David Priebe, Michael Ezeike and transfer Evidence Njoku in the tight end room.

Dulcich caught eight passes for 105 yards and a score last year while Martinez caught three balls for 36 yards. Njoku caught just one ball in his time at Miami, Fla. but stands at 6’6 an is the younger brother of current NFL TE David Njoku.

Good luck on the other side, Matt, but Go Bruins!
