Yet another Colorado football player is likely on his way out of Boulder.
On Friday, receiver Chase Penry announced his intention to put his name into the NCAA transfer portal when the 45-window opens on Monday.
“Running with Ralphie was the thrill of a lifetime,” the Cherry Creek High School graduate wrote. “Having the chance to make plays at Folsom is something I’ll never forget. I’ve made brothers in Boulder who will always be family. I’m entering the portal Monday with 3 years to play. Hungrier than ever. Ready for what’s next.”
Following a miserable season, the Buffs (1-11, 1-8 Pac-12) have already had five players announce their intention to enter the transfer portal.
True freshman quarterback Owen McCown and fifth-year junior guard Casey Roddick announced their decisions earlier this week. Safety Isaiah Lewis and receiver Maurice Bell are also in the portal, but both are sixth-year seniors who need a medical hardship waiver to gain a seventh season and final year of eligibility.
Penry played in 11 games a true freshman in 2021, catching eight passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. He also had three punt returns for 53 yards.
After battling injuries this year, Penry played in four games, the maximum allowed to main a redshirt season. He caught two passes for 25 yards and had three punt returns for 16 yards.
