Colorado Buffaloes have extended an offer to 2026 offensive lineman Desmond Green. The six-foot-four and half, 354-pound IOL is listed as a three-star per 247Sports. Green is from Saint Stephen, South Carolina, attending Timberland High School.

On top of Colorado, Green has received offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Clemson — the talent is there, he is wanted. However, he will surely get more as time goes by — he's still a junior in high school.

As Buffaloes Wire Tony Cosolo relayed, Green covers something that's been a sore spot for CU in the "Prime Time" era in Boulder: run protection.

"Watching his high school highlights, you can see the power already in his game, as he easily outmatches opposing defenders in the run game," Cosolo prefaced before saying, "I will be watching to see how his footwork and agility improve in the coming years."

Sanders hopes that Green will be able to play in the trenches for him by the time he's graduated high school and moving on to the next level.

Who else is offered in the 2026 class for Colorado football?

The dream is that Sanders will still be the head coach by the time this class arrives on campus but when considering the underlying health problems that could hinder him at any moment.

Despite that, Coach Prime has powered through regardless of the setback.

Health aside, Sanders has given offers to fellow offensive linemen Keeyi Pepe, Blake Graham, Michael Langi and George Haseotes.

In terms of skill position players, Calvin Russell, Brandon Bennett, Tradarian Ball, KD Jones and more have also received offers.

Shedeur Sanders, Travis Hunter and Coach Prime are preparing for a big avenge season after starting hot in 2023 before crumbling like a cookie when it was all said and done.

Hopefully, they can get something going and carve a path for the future of Colorado football.
