Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes have lost another player to the transfer portal.
Colorado wide receiver Montana Lemonious-Craig burst onto the college football scene on Saturday as the star of the Buffaloes spring game, but his heart seemed to be elsewhere by the time the game was over.
The junior announced Sunday evening that he will enter the transfer portal.
“I am writing to express my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the entire University of Colorado community for the incredible opportunity I have had attending this esteemed institution in Boulder, Colorado,” he wrote in his Twitter post. “During the course of my time at the University of Colorado, I have been fortunate to cross paths with many remarkable individuals who have played a significant role in my journey.”
Lemonious-Craig caught three passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns during the Buffaloes’ spring game. One of those catches was a 98-yard score from transfer quarterback Shedeur Sanders.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder from Inglewood, California, was the Buffaloes second-leading receiver last season with 23 catches for 359 yards and three touchdowns.
He caught 10 passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns in nine games as a redshirt freshman in 2021. He saw action in three games as a true freshman in 2020, which preserved his redshirt.
Lemonious-Craig was a three-star prospect in the Class of 2020.
Ove the course of about one week, the Colorado Buffaloes have lost upward of 24 players to the transfer portal. Deion and his staff do not seem to be worried about it too much since they are able to replace these players.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
