(CBS) The Illinois State football team inked one of the most uniquely named players in sports history to their 2017 recruiting class on Wednesday’s national signing day.

The Redbirds signed 6-foot-7 offensive lineman Kobe Buffalomeat from Lawrence, Kansas. His signing and one-of-a-kind name drew quite the response on social media.

Buffalomeat can be found on Twitter @buffalomeat10, where he makes clear in his bio that “yes my name is Kobe Buffalomeat.”  He had fun with his newfound attention, rewteeting a DiGiorno Pizza post that asked if there was “Any word on Ron Pizzadough starting this year?” and playing to the crowd.
