The Colorado Buffaloes were able to land one of the nation's top defensive recruits, Deion Sanders, before the start of the 2023 season.
Coming out of high school in Florida, Cormani McClain was a five-star talent.
He first committed to Miami before decommitting and joining the Buffaloes once Sanders took over and settled in.
However, with Colorado dealing with the absence of two-way star Travis Hunter, the freshman could have been considered

McClain has two total tackles this season, one for a loss, in two appearances. Colorado is now 3-1.Coach Prime's response was direct.
