The Colorado Buffaloes are the story of the 2023 college football season so far.
Deion Sanders was brought in to help the 1-11 squad get back on track, and so far he has the team 2-0 with wins over TCU and Nebraska.
Colorado’s games have been ratings hits for ESPN and Fox Sports, and Boulder will host both ESPN’s College GameDay and FS1’s Big Noon Kickoff this weekend as they hope to improve to 3-0 against in-state rival Colorado State.
All of this hype is leading to a lot of positive momentum on the recruiting trail, according to Sanders.
“Obviously, when you have a coach that played defensive back, your attractability is skill position. So, we don’t have a tremendous problem getting those bigs [offensive and defensive linemen]. I think we have a tremendous rotation of bigs, offensive and defensive line. … Trust me. Those guys are coming,” Sanders said Tuesday when asked about his focus on recruiting linemen.
“We are receiving so many calls at this point right now that it’s absurd. Just inquiring about what we do and how we do what we do in visitation and desiring to come on an unofficial or official visit. So, I’m liking where we are right now.”
Last week it was reported that Bryce Underwood, arguably the No. 1 quarterback recruit of the 2025 class, will visit Colorado when the Buffaloes take on USC on Sept. 30.
