Colorado lands former Vanderbilt QB out of transfer portal
Walter Taylor will stay wearing gold and black.
Taylor, one of 3 Vanderbilt quarterbacks to hit the transfer portal following the end of the 2023 season, has reportedly decided on a transfer destination.
Taylor, who played sparingly for Vanderbilt, will join the Big 12 conference alongside Colorado next season, joining former Vanderbilt wide receiver Will Sheppard in Boulder with HC Deion Sanders.
Taylor saw action in 5 games this season but only attempted 15 passes, completing 5 of them for 44 yards with 1 interception. He will have 3 seasons of eligibility remaining after taking a redshirt season in 2022.

Colorado has now added 14 players out of the transfer portal, including a pair of quarterbacks: Taylor and former Kentucky QB Destin Wade, who is joined by his brother Keaten Wade, an edge rusher also out of Kentucky.
Vanderbilt is the opposite of Colorado as far as the portal is concerned. While Colorado has added 14 players, Vanderbilt has added only 4 with plenty more opting to head out of Nashville.
