FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado State football will be down an experienced linebacker this fall.

Trey Sutton, a redshirt junior, posted on Twitter that he has entered the transfer portal and will finish his final two years of eligibility elsewhere.

Sutton played in 16 total games over the course of the 2017 and 2018 seasons but did not see any game action in 2019. In total, the 6-foot-0, 230-pound linebacker recorded 27 tackles (9 solo) while in a Rams uniform.

Some of Sutton’s most noteworthy performances include a six-tackle showing against Colorado in the 2018 Rocky Mountain Showdown, as well as a career-high seven total tackles in the 2018 loss to Air Force.

Coming out of high school, Sutton was ranked the No. 33 prospect in the city of Miami, Florida, and labeled a 3-star recruit. It will be interesting to see if Sutton decides to finish up his collegiate career somewhere closer to home.
