No program has achieved greater success in the last six months than Colorado. Since hiring Deion Sanders as head coach, the Buffaloes have been on an historic winning streak. Therefore, tickets are available for regular season home games Sold out for the first time in decadesand expectations of the team are sure to increase dramatically in 2023.

However, this program had a deep hole to climb out of, and it still has a lot of work to do before it’s ready to compete with true Power 5 competitors. At the top of the list, they need to recruit more firepower and depth at the game’s most critical position.

For the foreseeable future, the Buffs will field Coach Prime’s son, Shedeur Sanders, as quarterback. He is a four-star recruit from the 2021 vintage and one of several players to follow Prime out of Jackson State.

However, after Sanders, there is no clear line of succession at QB.

With the aim of changing that Colorado has offered two of the best quarterbacks in the 2025 class.

First, there’s four-star quarterback TJ Lateef of Orange Lutheran, California. He is listed as 6’1″ and weighs 185 pounds and ranks ninth among quarterbacks in his class. Lateef is also ranked 17th in its class in California and 148th nationally.

Lateef also has offers from Georgia, Miami, Arizona, Arizona State, Boston College, Cincinnati, Florida State, Texas A&M, and Indiana. There doesn’t seem to be a clear favourite, as a prediction model from On3 has Arizona State as a very weak favorite at just 12.1%, followed by Arizona at 10.6%. Oregon State is second at 9.1% and Colorado is currently at 7.6%.

The other signal caller sophomore they’ve offered is four-star quarterback Bear Bachmeier of Murrieta Valley, California. Bachmeier (5’10” tall, 200 pounds) ranks just one place behind Lateef, No. 19 in the state and No. 165 in the nation.

Thirteen other programs made offersincluding Purdue, Oregon, Miami, Kansas and Stanford. Again, there’s no real front runner, as On3 predicts San Diego State as the favorite at 11.3%.
