CU Buffs Davis and Shenault say goodbye to Colorado

CU Buffs Joe Davis and La’Vontae Shenault say their goodbyes officially to Colorado this week. Well it wouldn’t be a normal day of the week if somebody in Boulder wasn’t entering the transfer portal. Joe Davis, a sophomore and former 3 star recruit from Littleton, Colorado has now entered the transfer portal. He began his career at Colorado in 2019 rushing in just 2 games for 13 yards. Year 2020 was more of the same rushing in just 4 games for a total of 29 yards. 2021 came around and reached no different milestone only playing in 1 game for a 5 rush and 22 yard effort.

La’Vontae Shenault, younger brother of Laviska Shenault who is a wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars and former Buff himself, declared back in November he was entering the transfer portal. He is a redshirt freshman by way of DeSoto, Texas. Shenault has plenty of time and talent to make a big name for himself in college football. This season he caught 6 receptions for 60 yards in 3 games with the Buffs. In 2020 he caught 193 yards on 17 receptions in 4 games. La’Vontae has now chosen to play for Alabama State University. Buff Nation sends you all the best on your journey in football. We wish you could have shined bright here, but we still root for you in your next adventure. Good Luck at ASU!

 

For Joe Davis we wish you all the best luck in the world and hope you can find a team that lets you show what you can do best. Words from Davis about leaving Colorado:

“I want to acknowledge and address how thankful I am for the people my life that have helped me in my journey at the University of Colorado. I’ve grown and developed into the man I am today through my time in my first years of college. Thank you to the local sponsors that showed endless support in my time here.

After much consideration I have decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal with three years of eligibility left. I am excited for what is next in my future, as nothing but opportunity and blessings are to come.”

Davis saw limited action as a buff gaining 42 yards on the ground as a running back, but he did add 3 special teams points. On a team who is adapted to utilize running backs more and cherish their ground game a little more we know he will breakout into a great player. We look forward to seeing you out there again Joe. God bless and good luck to you in your future endeavors. We will be watching.
