The Colorado Buffaloes have landed yet another lauded transfer safety to their absurdly loaded defensive backfield, as Shilo Sanders has officially committed to the program.

Shilo Sanders is Coach Prime’s third-oldest child, but is more than worthy of competing for a starting role with the Buffaloes considering his success in the SEC with the South Carolina Gamecocks, and in the SWAC with Prime’s own Jackson State Tigers.

During his two seasons with the Gamecocks, Sanders appeared in 11 games and tallied 34 tackles, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery. Sanders then transferred to Jackson State, where he really blossomed.

In 2021, he earned second-team All-SWAC honors, and his four interceptions were tied for the second-most in the conference.

Earning playing time might be more difficult in Boulder than it was in Jackson, considering all the talent they’ve brought into the defensive backfield. Plus, holdover Trevor Woods was a rare bright spot for the Colorado Buffaloes last season, and continued to be a standout during spring ball, despite having to compete against all of Coach Prime’s newly acquired stars.

Shilo Sanders will also have to compete with Cam’Ron Silmon-Craig, who earned first-team All-SWAC honors in 2022, three incoming Power-5 transfers, and the rest of CU’s stacked safety group, which suddenly looks like one of the conference’s best.
