  04/04/20 - Sam NoyerSr/2021, Colorado, 6-3, 215 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  A familiar face is returning to the Colorado quarterback room. Former backup Sam Noyer, who moved to safety last season and entered the transfer portal this winter, will remain with the Buffaloes and return to his original position, Buffzone has learned through multiple sources. A senior, Noyer is expected to compete for the starting job with redshirt junior Tyler Lytle and true freshman Brendon Lewis. After losing three-year starter Steven Montez to graduation and redshirt sophomore Blake Stenstrom to the transfer portal, CU had been down to two scholarship quarterbacks.

Adding Noyer back to the quarterback room allows CU to gain a veteran who knows the roster and knows the offense. Although the Buffs have a new head coach in Karl Dorrell, offensive coordinator Darrin Chiaverini is heading into his fifth season with the program. Chiaverini is returning to the play-calling role he had in 2018, when Noyer was a sophomore. Noyer, a 6-foot-4, 220-pounder from Beaverton, Ore., signed with CU in 2016 and spent his first three seasons with the Buffs as a backup quarterback. After redshirting in 2016, he appeared in nine games as a backup in 2017 and 2018, completing 21-of-41 passes for 179 yards and two interceptions. - Daily Camera

  03/23/20 - Delrick Abrams Jr.Sr/2020, Colorado, 6-2, 191 (DS#40 CB) + More +

  It's usually not too difficult to get a smile out of Delrick Abrams Jr., but after working out for NFL scouts at Colorado's pro day earlier this month, the smile was particularly bright. "I feel like I had a good day," said Abrams, a 6-foot-2, 191-pound cornerback. "I'm proud of all the stuff I did. I have no regrets." "Whatever happens on draft day is what happens," Abrams said. "I'm just blessed to even have to opportunity to be here. Most people don't have the opportunity. God first and I just keep working."

Abrams played two seasons at Independence (Kan.) Community College, and was an all-conference performer for the Pirates. By the end of his time at Indy, he was rated a top-75 junior college prospect and signed with the Buffs. Although he dealt with some minor injuries at CU, Abrams was a two-year starter at corner, playing in 21 of 24 games. Overall, he posted 99 tackles and 15 pass breakups. At pro day, he posted a 4.5-second time in the 40 and a broad jump of 128 inches. - Daily Camera

  03/21/20 - Nate LandmanSr/2021, Colorado, 6-2, 230 (DS#4 ILB) + More +

  Colorado Gov. Jared Polis on Friday signed a bill designed to help college athletes in the state profit off their names, Images and likenesses, the governor's office said. The law is set to take effect Jan. 1, 2023, putting it on the same schedule as a law that California approved last fall. The Florida legislature last week sent a name, image and likeness bill to Gov. Ron DeSantis, who had announced his support for such a measure. Amid the coronavirus crisis, Polis signed the bill administratively, meaning there was no audience for this final step. The governor's spokesman, Conor Cahill, said the office had no further immediate comment. The bill passed the state House of Representatives just over two weeks ago by a 55-9 margin. It was approved Feb. 12 by a unanimous vote in the state Senate, where it originated. Similar bills are pending in more than 20 other states, including Illinois and New York. - Daily Camera

  03/12/20 - Steven MontezrSr/2020, Colorado, 6-4, 231 (DS#10 QB) + More +

  Steven Montez has a pretty simple plan for the next several weeks leading up to the NFL Draft. "Stay here (in Boulder) and stay in shape," the former Colorado quarterback said Wednesday after the Buffs' annual pro day. "Don't eat pizza. Don't drink soda. Don't eat candy. Don't do any of that stuff." Montez was one of 16 former Buffs to work out for pro scouts at CU's indoor practice facility. There were 32 representatives from 26 teams (25 NFL, one XFL). Among the highlights was Davion Taylor's blistering time in the 40-yard dash, Delrick Abrams Jr.'s overall performance, Tony Brown showing off his speed, and Tim Lynott performing well in specific areas.

Last month, Montez had a good performance at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, including ranking among the fastest quarterbacks in the 40-yard dash at 4.68 seconds. He also ranked among the top seven in the 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump, broad jump and cone drill. Because he did well in Indy, Montez didn't participate in drills Wednesday, but did throw for scouts and had a solid performance with the draft around the corner, April 23-25. "I just wanted to show my ability to throw the ball," said Montez, who measured at 6-foot-4, 229 pounds. "I think that was the focal point of me coming out here today. I think my numbers at the combine kind of spoke for themselves. I definitely did want to come out here and throw, especially with my teammates, and I thought it went really well." - Daily Camera

  The Colorado football team held their annual Pro Timing day on Wednesday with 39 representatives from 29 NFL teams present, though originally there were supposed to be several more assistant coaches; many NFL teams are pulling back and keeping their personnel close to home because of the Coronavirus situation around the world. Today's participants consisted of quarterback Steven Montez (who participated in passing drills only), wide receiver Tony Brown, tight ends Beau Bisharat and Jalen Harris, offensive linemen Arlington Hambright, Tim Lynott, and Jack Shutack, linebackers Davion Taylor, Alex Tchangam, and Nu'umotu Falo Jr., defensive back Delrick Abrams Jr., safety Mikial Onu, long snapper J.T. Bale, punter Alex Kinney, and placekicker Davis Price. Also participating was Daniel Talley, a former CU defensive back who graduated in 2018 but was unable to participate in that year's Pro Day due to injury. - Colorado Football

  Antonio Alfano was suspended by Alabama and entered the transfer portal before he ever played a game for the Crimson Tide. Now the former five-star recruit, who transferred to Colorado last November, has been suspended from his new team. On Monday, new Colorado coach Karl Dorrell announced an indefinite suspension of Alfano for a violation of team rules: According to Colorado head coach Karl Dorrell, DL Antonio Alfano, a transfer from Alabama "has been suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules." - Birmingham News

  A lingering core muscle injury prevented Laviska Shenault from showcasing his skills and speed at the NFL scouting combine, where the former University of Colorado superstar posted a slower-than-expected 4.58 seconds in the 40-yard dash. What was instead on display in Indianapolis last week was Shenault's off-the-charts ambition, the same desire that drove him to play through pain most of last season. Following his combine cameo, Shenault flew straight to Philadelphia, where noted surgeon Dr. William Myers on Tuesday performed a bilateral pelvic repair, said Shenault's agent, Damarius Bilbo. Although Shenault was disappointed in his 40 time, Bilbo said Myers told him he was stunned Shenault ran as fast as he did given the injury. Shenault will need about six weeks of rehab and recovery, meaning he'll miss CU's pro day later this month and he won't be able to work out for teams ahead of the April 23-25 NFL draft. One of the most explosive athletes in football when healthy, Shenault could have avoided this scenario by undergoing surgery last fall when he got hurt. - AP College Football

  02/27/20 - Nate LandmanSr/2021, Colorado, 6-2, 230 (DS#4 ILB) + More +

  Newly hired Colorado football coach Karl Dorrell will keep four assistants from the previous staff. Among those sticking around Boulder, Colorado, will be Darrin Chiaverini, who was named interim coach after Mel Tucker left for Michigan State and before Dorrell was brought on board. The other coaches who were retained include Darian Hagan, Brian Michalowski and Tyson Summers. Their exact roles have yet to be determined. Dorrell plans to name six more assistant coaches by early next week. The assistant coaching positions figure to be more lucrative in 2020. Colorado athletic director Rick George is proposing a salary pool of $3.8 million for the assistants, which is up from nearly $3.2 million for Tucker's staff. - AP College Football

  The University of Colorado has reached into the NFL ranks again to find their head football coach, luring Karl Dorrell back to Boulder from the Miami Dolphins. Athletic director Rich Geoge hired Dorrell on Sunday, two weeks after Mel Tucker bolted for Michigan State and 72 hours after Dorrell was promoted to assistant head coach of the Dolphins after one season as receivers coach. Dorrell, 56, who went 35-27 as UCLA's head coach from 2003-07, will be formally introduced Monday. Tucker, who had a decade of experience in the NFL ranks, went 5-7 in his one season in Boulder after arriving from the University of Georgia in December 2018. Dorrell brings 16 years of coaching experience in the college ranks, including 2003-07 as head coach at his alma mater, UCLA, and 14 years in the NFL, including three seasons in Denver as Mike Shanahan's wide receivers coach in the early 2000s. - AP College Football
