The final home game for Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders’ first season as Colorado Football’s head coach is upon us. In a season full of highs and lows, Coach Prime has hosted many of the best recruits in the 2024 and 2025 recruiting classes. While this weekend’s list of visitors has a large group of local prospects heading to Boulder, one of the best and most versatile athletes in the country returns to Folsom Field for his second visit this season.
Below is a list of recruits who have publicly confirmed they will be in Boulder this weekend. All rankings are according to 247 Sports Composite rankings.

This will be Mikell’s second time in Boulder after officially visiting for Colorado’s home opener against Nebraska.
