Deion Sanders is already making a big splash as the new head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes.

He’s landed some key players from the transfer portal and is recruiting at a high level already. Now he’ll try to turn the Buffaloes from one of the worst Power 5 teams in the nation into one of the best.

FOX Sports analyst Joel Klatt, a Colorado alum, is all-in on Coach Prime. In fact, Klatt said on Monday that he thinks Colorado will be in the mix for the College Football Playoff in 2024:

“It’s not what it pays off next year in wins that interests me,” Klatt says. “It’s the year after. … It’s the year USC and UCLA leave to go to the Big Ten. And it’s the year that the Playoff expands. And basically, you win the Pac-12 and you’re going to almost have a guaranteed spot in the Playoff.

“You see where I’m headed with this. I fully expect, in Year 2 under Deion Sanders at Colorado, that they are competing as a top 2 or 3 program in the conference, which means they’re competing for the conference crown, which means they’re competing for a chance to go to the College Football Playoff. I think it can go that quick.”

Will Klatt be proven right? Colorado fans would love to see the turnaround under Sanders take place that quickly.
