Earlier this month, standout offensive lineman Jordan Seaton, a five-star recruit, committed to joining the Buffaloes. However, recent activity on his Twitter account suggests that he may be reconsidering his commitment to Boulder:
“Going into that announcement Tennessee, Oregon and Ohio State were three programs that had some buzz to it. Ducks head Coach Dan Lanning went in-home with Seaton after he gave his verbal to Sanders and company. Another program that hasn’t gone away is Maryland. Head coach Mike Locksley is one of Seaton’s longest-standing relationships, and originally coming up with Washington (DC) St. John’s, he has a lot of ties to the region.” – Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports
There are reports that the Buffaloes’ rivals, the Oregon Ducks, as well as the Tennessee Volunteers and Ohio State Buckeyes, are showing interest in recruiting Seaton. Andrew Nemec of Sports Illustrated also reported that Oregon and Coach Dan Lanning have been making efforts to convince Seaton to join their team, including having an in-person meeting.
Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son, faced significant pressure as he was sacked 52 times during the season. Following a loss to UCLA, Coach Prime emphasized the need for new offensive linemen.
Last week, the Buffaloes received a significant boost on the offensive line with the announcement of Matthew Bedford’s transfer from Indiana to Colorado. Additionally, the team has secured commitments from Justin Miner (UTEP), Tyler Johnson (Texas and Houston), Kahlil Benson (Indiana), Yakiri Walker (UConn), and Issiah Walker Jr. (Butler Community College).
Despite a challenging 4-8 season, a revamped and improved offensive line could greatly contribute to the team’s success in the upcoming year.
