Colorado lands transfer commitment from former Marshall wide receiver
Colorado added another to the 2023 transfer class on Thursday.
Former Marshall wide receiver EJ Horton announced his commitment to the Buffaloes. Since entering the portal on April 15, Horton drew scholarship offers from a dozen programs, including BYU, Cal, and Mississippi State. He’ll have two years of eligibility after spending three at Marshall.

A 6-foot, 180-pound receiver from Louisville, Kentucky, Horton signed with Marshall as a 3-star prospect out of the 2020 class. He played in just one game during his true freshman season, then saw action in six games his second year.
Last season, Horton appeared in 12 games for the Thundering Herd and caught 12 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown.
Horton also competed in the men’s 60-meter dash in track for Marshall. He finished second at the finals of the Marshall Classic event last January after a 7.01-second time.
The receiver room at Colorado includes Jimmy Horn Jr. and Travis Hunter, two players expected to play significant roles in the offense next season. Beyond them, spots should be up for grabs across the board given the amount of turnover on the CU roster. Horton will have the opportunity to earn himself a role.
