Coach Prime has added a ton of talent to the Colorado Buffaloes football roster, yet they still only have one player on the Preseason All-Pac-12 TeamTravis Hunter.

Not only did Travis Hunter make the team, but he was named first-team All-Pac-12, as a cornerback and as an ‘all-purpose’ player on the special teams section. Hunter is the only player with multiple spots on the first-team squad, though Arizona’s Jacob Cowing appears at wide receiver and as an ‘all-purpose’ player on the second-team unit.

It’s somewhat surprising the CU Buffs don’t have more players on this list, but of course, they’d have zero without the hiring of their new head coach, but it still shows just how far they still have to go to be viewed as one of the Pac-12’s powers.

Even in the honorable mentions, which featured every other player to at least four votes, the Colorado Buffaloes only appeared three times, with two of those coming on special teams, and the third being a different state of Travis Hunter.

Hunter was also an honorable mention at wide receiver, which is remarkable considering just how little he’s played that position in any setting, let alone a live-game setting.

Punter Mark Vassett and wide receiver Jimmy Horn Jr. were the only other Colorado Buffaloes to receive serious consideration for the list, though Horn only received that consideration as a return specialist.

Between now and the end of the season, expect a lot to change. A lot of this is the result of no one in the media knowing what the Coach Prime Buffs will look like, as much of the Pac-12 media is unfamiliar with the incoming transfers. That won’t be the case in December.

Shedeur Sanders, Alton McCaskill, Xavier Weaver, LaVonta Bentley, Demouy Kennedy, and pretty much every member of the secondary have a very good chance of forcing their way into the conversation once the games start.
