Social Media Reacts To Illinois State Recruit Kobe Buffalomeat’s Ridiculously Awesome Name
Top recruits in the nation got national attention during today’s National Signing Day, as they always do. But nobody got more attention than a little known player that was headed to Illinois State, not because he’s a huge signing, but because of his name.
First name: Kobe
Last name: Buffalomeat
Social media reacted just as you expected:

Mr. and Mrs. Buffalomeat: “Bison!”

All that social media attention got him booked on Jimmy Kimmel.
I am told Illinois State football recruit Kobe Buffalomeat will appear on the Jimmy Kimmel Show tonight.
