Former Colorado quarterback Blake Stenstrom is heading to Princeton.

Stenstrom, who entered the NCAA transfer portal in February, announced his decision Tuesday evening on Twitter.

“I am extremely grateful to announce my transfer acceptance and verbal commitment to play football at Princeton University,” Stenstrom wrote. “It is an incredible honor to be welcomed into the (Princeton football) tradition.”

Stenstrom, a redshirt freshman last season with the Buffaloes, announced his decision to transfer after head coach Mel Tucker and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jay Johnson left CU for Michigan State.

Stenstrom was expected to compete for the starting job at CU next season, but will now compete for the starting job at Princeton, which lost its quarterback to graduation.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Stenstrom came to CU in the class of 2018 from Valor Christian High School. After redshirting in 2018, Stenstrom appeared in three games last season. He completed 1-of-3 passes for 12 yards and an interception and also had one run for 27 yards.
