One of the stars of Colorado's early 2023 success appears headed for the exits. Buffaloes running back Dylan Edwards is entering the transfer portal, according to a Tuesday morning report from Chris Hummer and Matt Zenitz of 247Sports.

In 2023, Edwards carried the ball 76 times for 321 yards and a touchdown. In addition to leading the team in rushing, the Derby, Kan. native and former four-star recruit caught 36 passes for 299 yards and four touchdowns.

His star turn came in Colorado's season opener, against a TCU team ranked No. 17 in the nation. In that contest, Edwards caught five passes for 135 yards and three touchdowns to go with a score on the ground.

The Buffaloes carried that 45-42 win—along with early victories over Nebraska and Colorado State—to an unusual degree of cultural notoriety, but quickly fell to Earth and finished 4-8.

Colorado opens its 2024 season on Aug. 29 against North Dakota State.
