Colorado football preferred walk-on signee Gage Goldberg, son of WWE legend Bill Goldberg, doesn't want to be forgotten when he gets to Boulder -- giving himself the goal of earning a scholarship to play for the Buffs in the coming years.

"It goes together, the names Goldberg and Sanders," the younger Goldberg told the San Antonio Express-News (h/t CBS Sports). "They are like two of the exact, same things. I feel like I won't be forgotten in that program because of that and because I'm going to be putting everything I got and I'm going to show them what I have and going to be proving it.

"It's the best chance for me because I have the work ethic and I'm going to put in that work and I'm going to be ready for the next couple of years. Hopefully, in a year or two, I'll get that scholarship. Working up from the bottom is definitely the best, too."

Colorado football added more star-power and family ties in offseason

Colorado broke the record for most sibling pairs in history over the offseason, and in adding Coach Prime's good friend Goldberg's son, more family ties were brought to Boulder. Make no mistake about it, though, Colorado also added a great deal of star power as well.

Jordan Seaton is the highest-rated Colorado recruit in CU's "Prime Time" era, while Will Sheppard could step into the Xavier Weaver workhorse role in the receiving corps. There aren't many stars coming in the defensive trenches via the portal, but that narrative could change.

Colorado is committing to culture over NIL pay-to-play millions to spread around, with Coach Prime assuring folks that CU isn't an ATM. Goldberg is not high on the list of priorities yet, but he too can change the narrative in the defensive trenches.
