The Colorado Buffaloes have had a mass exodus of proven offensive players over the last few weeks. Following the change in offensive coordinator from Darrin Chiaverini to Mike Sanford, many of the best players on offense have decided to take their offensive talents elsewhere.

Sneed comes to Boulder after playing at Baylor, where he has been since 2017. He led the team in receptions and yards in 2020 before taking a step back last year in 2021.
