Deion Sanders Tells Colorado Players To Hit The Portal In First Team Meeting

Videos by OutKick

Deion Sanders landed in Boulder over the weekend and has immediately taken a blowtorch to the entire Colorado program.

And by that, I mean Prime sat the current team down for a little meet-and-greet Sunday morning, and basically told the fellas they all stink and need to hit the transfer portal, because he’s bringing in real talent.

Good to meet, ya!

Deion Sanders tells players to try transfer portal

My goodness, if you thought Deion Sanders was a #contentmachine before Colorado, just wait. If these past 24 hours are any indication, we’re in for a real treat over the next few years.

“We got a few positions already taken care of because I’m bringing my luggage with me, and it’s Louis,” is an all-time line from Prime right off the bat, and absolutely nobody is laughing in that room.

Can’t blame them, either. He basically just told you that you’re 1-11 record ain’t gonna cut it and you better make plans elsewhere.

Scratch that, he didn’t basically tell them any of that. Prime literally just says it!

“I’m coming, and when I get here, it’s gonna be changed,” he says of the crappy culture. “I want ya’ll to get ready to go ahead and jump in that portal … the more you jump in, the more room you make.”

Absolutely lethal truth-bomb here from Prime, who’s already walking the walk by naming his son QB1 AT THE OPENING PRESS CONFERENCE.

Travis Hunter Jr., the former No. 1 recruit who shocked everybody by picking Jackson State over Florida State on National Signing Day last year, is also likely headed to play for the Buffaloes.

He teased the idea as Deion landed his first commitment at a Power Five program, less than 18 hours after being announced.

Needless to say, Coach Prime has been on one.

What a time to be alive. I am ALL IN on the Colorado Buffaloes, baby!

  1. I would have liked to see what he would have done in the tournament (FCS) but he elected to play in their bowl game is ready. Not sure how this is going to go. But at 1-11 can it get much worse?

  2. I love it. Shake out the ones who don’t want to be there. Culture change is tough. Go ahead and cry about education. College sports and education went out the door years ago. I say drop the “non profit” status of the sports programs. If all the programs are losing money (like everone says it is) they will not have to pay taxes anyway.

  3. Trying to get the CU football scholarships back; seems kind of crappy for those truly interested in getting educated. “We gave you a scholarship, and now we are taking it away; and by the way: screw you.” This is pretty standard, glad for the portal and for NIL, these coaches and colleges have the morality of snakes.
