Opposed to last year when only a few significant players stuck around, the Colorado Buffaloes will return most of their high-impact names heading into the 2024 season.
Those returning for the Buffs include head coach Deion Sanders’ sons Shedeur and Shilo Sanders, two-way phenom Travis Hunter, wide receiver Jimmy Horn Jr., safety Cam’Ron Silmon-Craig and linebacker LaVonta Bentley. Colorado’s offensive and defensive lines, however, will look quite different as Coach Prime added several notable transfers.
ESPN recently revealed its first college football returning production rankings for 2024 (subscription required) and CU fared quite well.
