The Colorado Buffaloes and head coach Deion Sanders are without a doubt the biggest story in college football right now. They’ve caught the eye of some of the nation’s most prized recruits, including 2025 quarterback Bryce Underwood, who will be making the trip to Boulder for Saturday’s game against Colorado State
Bryce Underwood is the top ranked quarterback and player in the 247 composite rankings for the class of 2025 (current high school juniors). And, the Michigan native is being pursued by plenty of the traditional powers in the sport.
Oregon, Alabama, LSU, and Michigan have stood out early on in his recruitment, but Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes have quickly made up ground. So much so, in fact, that he’s changed his plans for the weekend and will be heading to Colorado to take in the atmosphere. Here’s 247Sports with more.
The No. 1 2025 quarterback recruit in the country will be at Colorado this weekend as Belleville (Mich.) High five-star junior Bryce Underwood heads to Boulder to watch the Buffaloes take on Colorado State.
Underwood was originally planning to visit for the USC game at the end of the month.
“Last-minute decision,” Underwood’s father Jaquan confirmed regarding the change in plans.
Underwood will be enjoying his homecoming the weekend Colorado welcomes the Trojans to town, but getting out to see Deion Sanders and his staff and take in a game was something the family was really excited to do and glad they could make it work this weekend.
Apparently, the recruitment has heated up in recent weeks, according to his dad, Jaquan.
“We were able to talk to Prime. Everybody pitches they want Bryce to take the keys to their offense. They think he’s a guy to backup or be mentored by Shedeur. Just having that opportunity and Prime is a legend. When I was a kid I wanted to be like Prime. I played corner. Having that guy on the other end talking to my son, it was surreal.
“We really like Colorado.”
Pretty much everyone is loving Colorado right now. Deion Sanders has made a monster impact in his first year in Boulder. The team is 2-0 through two games, and after being 1-11 last year, are ranked 18th in the country. Their win over last year’s College Football Playoff runner-up TCU in week one stunned the college football world, and turned Deion’s quarterback son, Shedeur, as well as cornerback Travis Hunter into household names and Heisman contenders.
Last week, Colorado and Deion Sanders blew out rival Nebraska, 36-14. This week’s game against Colorado State has once again caused a strong demand for tickets, with the cheapest ticket on StubHub as of 4PM ET on Thursday at $198.
