Colorado earns transfer commitment from former South Florida wide receiver
Colorado added to what is already the nation’s No. 1 transfer class on Wednesday.
Former South Florida wide receiver Xavier Weaver announced his commitment to CU on social media. Weaver revealed he was entering the portal back on Dec. 28. Days later, he shared that West Virginia and Oklahoma had offered him scholarships alongside Colorado.
Weaver will have two years to play one for the Buffs.

A 6-foot-1 receiver out of Orlando (Fla.) Christian Prep, Weaver was an All-AAC Second Team selection a season ago for the Bulls after hauling in a career-best 53 receptions for 718 yards and six touchdowns — all of which were team-leading marks.
In four years and 38 total appearances for the program, Weaver recorded 116 receptions for 1,735 and eight touchdowns. He also scored a short rushing touchdown in 2021.
According to BuffStampede’s Adam Munsterteiger, Weaver is expected to arrive on campus in the summertime.
The Buffaloes’ transfer class is now 26-deep, with commitments from potential immediate-impact players all over the field. Coach Deion Sanders promised to remake the roster and he has done exactly that.
Weaver is also the second former USF receiver to commit to transfer to Colorado this offseason. He’ll reunite with former teammate Jimmy Horn Jr.
CU should have a healthy competition at receiver in the spring and fall. Jordyn Tyson and Montana Lemonious-Craig return after relatively productive seasons given CU’s passing struggles in 2022.
