Deion ”Coach Prime” Sanders has brought an unstoppable wave of momentum to Colorado’s football program and it comes to a head this weekend with CU’s sold-out spring football game.

At least 24 notable former Buffs including Kordell Stewart, Daniel Graham, David Bahktiari, Mason Crosby will be in attendance and signing autographs on Franklin Field before Saturday’s spring game. It has been heavily rumored that multiple celebrities will make an appearance and there may even be a performance from one of Coach Prime’s contacts.

Expect to also see multiple 2023 incoming transfers or recruits, including Kasen Weisman, who has been leading the charge in terms of players recruiting other players on Twitter.

Finally, below you’ll find a list of recruits from 2024 and beyond who have been confirmed by DNVR to be visiting this weekend.
