Defensive back KJ Trujillo is the latest member of the Colorado football team to enter his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

Trujillo, a true sophomore, announced his decision on social media Tuesday.

“First off, I would like to thank God for every blessing and opportunity he has given me in life,” he wrote. “Thank you to the coaches who worked with me at CU, the academic and support staff, and my teammates, some who will remain my brothers 4L (for life). With that being said, after long conversations, deep thoughts and countless hours of prayer, I will be entering the transfer portal and looking for a new home.”

Trujillo, from Buena Park, Calif., played in eight games and started seven at cornerback as a true freshman in 2019. He had 21 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception in 438 snaps played that season.

This year, Trujillo was moved to safety and played as a reserve at both safety and cornerback at times. During the five-game regular season, he played just 34 snaps, with three tackles.

Trujillo is the seventh player from CU to enter his name in the transfer portal since the regular season finale against Utah on Dec. 11.
