Colorado has been recruiting at a break-neck speed ever since the transfer portal opened. Prime is looking for the perfect sequel to the overhyped season start, which is why Coach Prime Deion Sanders is hustling like never before. He called 2024 a “season of expectations” and he’s already raising expectations as another star defensive player joins the Buffs.

Another defensive haul by Coach Prime and the Colorado Buffs! Deion Sanders has furnished the Buffs offensive line and now the defense is getting attention. The newly committed Buff is none other than Block Bully, Houston DL transfer Chidozie Nwankwo, who announced his decision during an Instagram live video. 

Nwankwo started over 27 games during his four seasons with the Cougars. The 295-pound defensive gem chose Colorado over various other programs, including Maryland, Missouri, and SMU, from whom he got offers. His commitment to Colorado could change the 2024 season when the DL takes on the “dirtiest, hardest job” on the football field, as his former Houston DC described.

The 5’11 DL said of his position, “Actually, I love it. If it’s easy, then something is wrong. That’s how I see it.” He has one season of eligibility remaining at Colorado.

This is a clear indication that Coach Prime is still building hope even though they fell short of fans’ expectations this season. An interesting season awaits in 2024.
