Wide receiver Xavier Weaver, a pivotal figure in the Colorado football squad, showcased remarkable versatility, seamlessly adapting to various roles as required by head coach Deion Sanders. He was also ranked 5th in the Pac-12 in receiving yards per game at 82.5. Recently, the WR departed from Coach Prime’s team. However, Weaver’s stellar performance in 2023 earned him an invitation to the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine. 

Much like his mentor, Deion Sanders, Xavier Weaver exudes both style and confidence. Weaver stands out with his long hair and tattoos, each one carrying a tale or a meaningful message. Among his recent inks, one stands out as a special tribute to his former team, brimming with deep significance and serving as a heartfelt artistic homage.

Notably, the number 10 is boldly inked below the logo, representing Weaver’s jersey number with the Buffs. The tattoo serve as a reflection of Weaver’s deep pride in his team and his constant dedication to achieving excellence on the field.

Can the Buffs’ beacon on the field be replaced?

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide receiver led Colorado last season with 68 receptions for 908 yards (averaging 13.4 yards per catch) and just 4 touchdowns. He quickly became quarterback Shedeur Sanders’ top target after joining the team in the summer. It was just the 10th time in program history that a player posted at least 60 catches and 750 yards in a season. Even in tough matchups against top passing defenses like Oregon and UCLA, Weaver continued to excel. One of his standout moments was against Nebraska, where he had 10 receptions for 170 receiving yards and a touchdown.
