The Colorado Buffaloes find themselves on the brink of a transformation, or perhaps a new iteration. And the oar of this change is held by none other than Coach Prime. In a YouTube interview hosted by former NFL wide receiver, Brice Butler, Deion Sanders hinted at his ongoing recruiting strategy, and revealed how he focused on an “outside-in” strategy during the off-season.

According to this approach, Coach Prime will be finding players who align with his perceived set of required characteristics, even more so, for athletes who are ‘disciplined’.

Gradually, Sanders revealed that he goes beyond the conventional approach as far as recruiting is concerned. He claimed, “We are still not done, probably after the spring it’ll be several other players in the portal that fits the description and the smart tough a*s discipline with character. And we would target those guys and probably go after those guys.”

Concluding with a disappointing 4-8 record last season propelled the Buffaloes head coach to alter his outlook towards team building. As far as the “outside in” approach is concerned, Sanders had expressed a slight change to his motto a few days back and revealed, “Scale positions, so we build it from outside in and not the inside out”. Recognizing the importance of robustness prompted Coach Prime to make this tactical adjustment. And so, he has naturally channeled his focus to fortifying key positions and laying the foundation of a more resilient and balanced program.
