Colorado will be playing their “green and gold” spring game tomorrow (3:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.) The Buffaloes typically put their first-string offense and defense on one team together and have them play the backups. It should make for interesting television for those interested in seeing Shedeur Sanders, Travis Hunter and company together for the first time.
The real show will be happening behind the scenes, though. That’s where Colorado will be wooing some of the top prospects in the class of 2024 – including several blue-chip recruits who have already committed to other Power 5 programs.
Among the major players Coach Prime will be hoping to flip are these three:
Mobile Christian School (Ala.) 4-star Edge Sterling Dixon
Dixon (6-foot-3, 211 pounds) committed to Alabama back on December 1, but he’s obviously still open for business. He ranks No. 16 at his position and has offers from 31 schools total, but Colorado is not yet one of them.
Summer Creek (Texas) 4-star LB Xavier Atkins: LSU
Atkins (6-foot-0, 205 pounds) verbally committed to LSU just after July 4 last year. He’s ranked No. 22 among linebackers in his class and has 20 other offers on the table, including one from the Buffs.
Dunbar (Fla.) 4-star WR TJ Abrams:
Abrams (5-foot-11, 175 pounds) committed to Florida State in January but still has 24 other offers to choose from. That list includes Miami, Florida, Georgia and Colorado. Abrams ranks No. 36 among wide receivers in his class and No. 38 overall in the state of Florida.
