After landing a star receiver from FAU, the only question Colorado football will face offensively is their presumed offensive coordinator hire.

After Colorado football landed a star receiving target Shedeur Sanders coveted, FAU's Lajohntay Wester, Denver Sports' Jake Shapiro declared that the only question the Buffs now face is at offensive coordinator with their presumed new hire, Pat Shurmur.

"The Buffaloes top four factors to be Jimmy Horn Jr., Travis Hunter, Sheppard and Wester," Shapiro prefaced before saying, "The four combined for 270 catches, 3,140 yards and 27 TD in 2023. Two of the quartet were All-Americans. And that’s without mentioning last year’s freshman standout Omarion Miller, major recruit turned transfer from TCU Cordale Russell and incoming four-stars Drelon Miller and Kamron Mikell.

"Colorado has had five new offensive linemen, including the best prep tackle in the country, the top receiver from two programs, two other wideouts, two top prep pass-catchers, and a big-time tight end. The talent on Colorado’s offense will be there, the only question will be presumed offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur."

Lajohntay Wester commitment could lead Colorado football to his brother committing too

There's a possibility that there could be another Wester commit coming to Colorado now that the eldest brother has committed.

The Coloradoan's Scott Procter believes that Lajohntay's commitment could lead to a domino effect that brings both brothers to Boulder.

"Shedeur and Shilo Sanders play for their father," Procter prefaced before saying, "Brothers Keaten and Destin Wade recently transferred to Colorado from Kentucky. Perhaps Shedeur's public recruitment of Wester has to do with wanting another pair of brothers in Boulder. If Shedeur's recruiting pitch to LaJohntay works, Colorado could not only end up with one of college football's most productive receivers, but also an experienced linebacker who can help shore up a struggling run defense."

Coach Prime's focus on family could lead to a third with multiple members on the Buffs, with his own two sons and the Wade brothers already on the roster.
