Deion Sanders continues to stockpile talent in Boulder. The first-year head coach secured the commitment of a four-star athlete on Tuesday.

That pledge came while Coach Prime was having an Instagram Live session, resulting in the best possible reaction from the Buffs’ leader.

Sanders took to social media this afternoon, giving fans an opportunity to talk with him one-on-one. Not only did he answer the questions of those posting comments on the feed, but he also gave his followers a chance to hop on a live call.

After chatting with a few Colorado supporters, Prime was surprised with a familiar face near the end of his conversation. His final guest of the day would be none other than four-star prospect Aaron Butler, who the Buffaloes have been recruiting hard this offseason.

The athlete hails from California, and he boasts offers from every major program in college football. In the end, his decision appeared to come down to Colorado and Oregon. He’d also taken a visit to Georgia in April.

Ultimately, Butler chose the Buffs, doing so at the end of Coach Prime’s IG Live session. Here was Deion Sanders’ reaction to hearing the news.

“How’s it going coach?” Butler begins before Sanders responds, “Wait, I know him.”

After a brief back and forth, the recruit throws a Colorado hat on, signaling his commitment to the program. Coach Prime lost it.

“I can’t talk,” Sanders shouts before jumping out of his seat arms with raised and a smile from ear to ear.

According to 24/7 Sports, Butler is considered the 65th best player in the nation regardless of position. The 2024 prospect became the fifth pledge in the class, and the most highly rated, bumping the group up to No. 34 in the country.

Deion Sanders continues to build a foundation in Boulder, which starts with his first class this year. That group includes the top-ranked transfer class thanks to players like Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter.

He’ll hope to see that talent produce on the field, where many still doubt he can succeed in Year 1. Colorado kicks off the season against national runner-up TCU.
