Colorado Buffaloes can't stop talking about freshman wideout Jordyn Tyson
When it came to the offseason moves for a rebuilding Colorado Buffaloes offense, the acquisition of 3-star wideout Jordyn Tyson didn’t move the needle much. Phil McGeoghan joined the program as CU’s new wideout coach. RJ Sneed transferred in from Baylor, providing a thin group with some needed experience.
Don’t count out Tyson.
A summer arrival, the 6-foot wideout has been getting love from everyone. According to Buffzone’s Brian Howell, head coach Karl Dorrell and a number of players have named Tyson the guy who is impressing the most right now.
In the past week, we've asked head coach Karl Dorrell, as well as an OL, LB, QBs, and today a CB to name players that have impressed them. The first answer from everyone: true freshman WR Jordyn Tyson. #cubuffs

An Allen, Texas, native, Tyson’s recruitment was an interesting one. Colorado was the only Power Five program to extend an offer. The only other FBS-level schools to do so were Tulsa, Colorado State, Texas State, and New Mexico.
But Tyson caught 70 balls for 1,294 yards and 12 scores as a high school senior. CU needs to rebuild its receiver room after Brenden Rice and Dimitri Stanley transferred out of the program. With several returners on the mend from major injuries, there could be a real shot for Tyson to play his way into some immediate snaps, be it on special teams or on the offense.
