Edwards made an instant impact as a true freshman last season. He earned Colorado’s starting running back role and became the first Colorado true freshman to have the first points of the season since 2002.

Edwards ran for 321 yards and a touchdown across 76 carries, and he’s a threat to catch a pass as he hauled in 299 yards and four touchdowns through the air. He became the first true freshman in Colorado history with more than 250 rushing and receiving yards in the same year and the ninth Buffaloe to do so.

The Derby, Kansas, native will return to his home state where he developed into a four-star recruit. Edwards earned Gatorade Kansas Player of the Year his junior year of high school when he rushed for 2,603 yards and 38 touchdowns, eclipsing the 100-yard mark in every game.

The Buffaloes will enter Year 2 under head coach Deion Sanders this fall, and they also added former Ohio State running back Dallan Hayden through the transfer portal.
