Former Ohio State tight end Sam Hart announced on Friday that he would be Boulder bound. The three-star Colorado native made his homecoming official and became the latest transfer to join Coach Prime and the Buffs. 

The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder from Cherokee Trail wrapped up his third season with OSU. He was an All-State football player and wrestler with an undefeated 38-0 record in the 200 lbs class as a senior. He appeared in five games in 2022, including the College Football Playoff loss vs. Georgia. 

Hart is now CU's 25th transfer player prior to the 2024 season. He's one of two tight ends, along with Cincinnati four-star Chamon Metayer. The duo gives the Buffs depth to replace what Michael Harrison did last year. The lengthy hybrid was one of the primary receivers for Shedeur Sanders and came up big in key moments. He decided to follow former CU offensive coordinator Sean Lewis, who became the head coach of San Diego State.

Colorado will begin Spring Practices on Monday, March 18. It will be the first time seeing a majority of the Buffs newest additions out of the field for the first time running scripted plays. The Black and Gold Spring Game falls on April 27, with time and TV TBA.
