Deion Sanders Loses Colorado Starter To Transfer Portal On Thursday

Deion Sanders

Deion Sanders' tenure with the Colorado Buffaloes has started with a bang. Introduced to the Colorado press with a "Coach Prime" jersey, Sanders has already reportedly nabbed one star transfer from Jackson State

And Colorado fans are hopeful that's just the start of things to come. An acumen for recruitment is among the myriad positive qualities Sanders can bring to a Colorado program in need of rebuilding. 

Of course, for every attractive recruit Sanders brings to campus, there will be existing players who either don't factor into Deion's plans, or would prefer to pursue opportunities elsewhere. One of those players is cornerback Kaylin Moore. A veteran of two seasons with the Buffaloes, Moore entered the NCAA transfer portal Thursday. 

"I'd like to thank God and give him the praise for blessing me with the amazing opportunity to play football for the university of Colorado," Moore wrote in his Twitter announcement. "These two years at CU have been amazing.

Special thanks to my mom for her love and endless support, my dad for his strength and support, and the rest of my family and friends for rocking with me. Special thanks to coach [Rod] Chance & the CU coaches and administration, and to "Coach Meat" [Demetrice Martin] for recruiting me and helping me to develop as a player."

Moore would go on to thank his teammates and Colorado fans before making the announcement official. 

Notably, Moore thanked members of Colorado football's previous administration for getting him on board; perhaps a sign that he would never have gelled under the new regime. 

It will be a different landscape next season in Boulder, and it wouldn't come as a shock if Moore wasn't the only member of the 2022 squad to transfer out.
