When Deion Sanders left Jackson State to sign on as head coach with the Colorado Buffaloes, he made it clear that he would be bringing his own luggage, as in players from his old team to the new program.
A number of them followed him that includes his quarterback son, Travis Hunter, and many more. However, one of those players will now be headed elsewhere.
Colorado cornerback transfer Tayvion Beasley has re-entered his name into the 2023 NCAA transfer portal, per Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports.
He is now one of 18 Colorado players to enter the transfer portal after Coach Prime’s Spring Game debut.
Beasley was a three-star recruit from one of the top high school programs in the country, St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif.
A 5-foot-11, 170-pound cornerback, Beasley had options to play at the Power 5 level, but he chose to play at Jackson State for Deion Sanders.
So, when Sanders, known as “Coach Prime,” left JSU to take the head coaching job at Colorado, Beasley knew he wanted to make a move, too. Beasley announced his decision to transfer to CU in January.
Now, he won’t play a single game for Sanders and the Buffs.
Beasley, who has three years of eligibility remaining, was a backup nickelback at Jackson State last year, recording eight tackles, two interceptions, three pass breakups, and a fumble recovery.
He had offers from, among others, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, and USC, coming out of high school.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
