Colorado football recruiting: Five-star OL Jordan Seaton signs with Buffaloes, Deion Sanders



Five-star offensive lineman Jordan Seaton officially signed his National Letter of Intent with Deion Sanders and Colorado Friday. Seaton has been committed to the Buffaloes since Dec. 7, but caused apprehension among Colorado fans after he didn’t sign his NLI on Wednesday. The two-day delay came amid a reported late push from Maryland and others to flip his commitment. Colorado fans breathed a sigh of relief when Seaton signed his NLI on a video posted to social media. Shortly after, the Buffaloes made it official with a social media post of their own. 

The top-ranked OL in the 2024 recruiting class committed to Colorado earlier this month. The Buffaloes sit at No. 21 in the 247Sports team recruiting rankings.

Listed at 6-foot-5 and 287 pounds, Seaton has a freaky 6-foot-10 wingspan and even clocked 17.7 miles per hour on GPS tracking during a game, according to 247Sports. The No. 13 overall player in the 2024 recruiting cycle committed to Colorado over Maryland, Tennessee, Ohio State and Alabama among others. 247Sports director of scouting Andrew IvIns believes Seaton has day one NFL Draft potential. 

Seaton is a game-changer for a Colorado program in desperate need of reinforcements on the offensive line. The Buffaloes gave up 56 sacks — more than any other team in the Power Five — and ranked last nationally in rushing offense. Seaton should be a contender to start on as a freshman for Colorado and joins transfer newcomers Tyler Johnson (Houston), Yakiri Walker (UConn), Kahlil Benson (Indiana) and Justin Mayers (UTEP) on the offensive line.
