Colorado added a pair of transfers from the SEC on Saturday.

Former Alabama defensive back Jahquez Robinson and former Florida tackle David Conner are coming to Boulder, both announced on social media.

“Let’s get to work!” Robinson, a fourth-year sophomore, posted.

Mainly a special teams contributor during his three seasons at Alabama, Robinson played in eight games, recording two tackles, one tackle for loss and a sack.

Coming out of Sandalwood (Fla.) High School in 2020, Robinson was a four-star prospect and rated No. 21 nationally among cornerbacks by

Conner is on a visit to Boulder this weekend and decided to make the switch to CU, as well.

A three-star prospect coming out of Deerfield Beach (Fla.) High School a year ago, Conner did not appear in any games as a true freshman last season with the Florida Gators.

CU has had eight transfers coming since April 22, with seven of them on defense.


No Buffs were selected in the NFL Draft, but three former Buffs were reportedly signed as undrafted free agents Saturday: tight end Brady Russell (Philadelphia Eagles), outside linebacker Guy Thomas (Indianapolis Colts) and defensive end Terrance Lang (Los Angeles Chargers). Former CU linebacker Robert Barnes was invited to participate in rookie minicamp with the Seattle Seahawks.
