Jaunta’vius Johnson transferring from Colorado

Former Auburn DT leaves Colorado after a short stint with the Buffs

Wade Rackley/ Auburn University

Former Auburn graduate transfer defensive lineman Jaunta’vius Johnson will re-enter the NCAA transfer portal for the second time in the past six month, leaving Colorado after enrolling for the spring semester this past January.

Johnson, a four-star prospect from Lincoln, Ala. saw action in just three games over the past four seasons with the Tigers and was sidelined due to injury a majority of the time. He was expected to join the Buffs for spring practice, but returned home to Alabama to be with his wife and child following a serious car accident, according to BuffStampede reporter Adam Munsterteiger.

The 6-foot-3, 320-pound Johnson becomes the fourth Buffs defensive player to transfer away from Boulder in the past month. He joins safety L.J. Wallace, defensive lineman Tava Finau, and cornerback Kevin George among those exiting. Add that to potential starting safety Hasaan Hypolite being dismissed from the program due to a violation of team rules.
