Colorado transfer running back Dylan Edwards has committed to Kansas State, he announced on Sunday.

Edwards, the Buffaloes’ leading rusher as a true freshman in 2023, opted to move closer to home and join a Wildcats program that he’d previously committed to while in high school. The Derby, Kan., native entered the transfer portal on April 24 and committed after taking an official visit to K-State.

Edwards, a former four-star recruit who flipped from K-State to Notre Dame before signing with Colorado, rushed for a team-high 321 yards and produced 744 all-purpose yards in his lone season with the Buffaloes. He broke out in his first career game, a 45-42 upset win over TCU, with 177 yards and four touchdowns. Edwards also competed in two track meets for the Buffaloes in February.

He joins a Kansas State rushing attack that features DJ Giddens, who ranked fourth in the Big 12 in yards from scrimmage last season with 1,226 rushing yards, 323 receiving yards and 13 total touchdowns and earned honorable mention all-conference honors. Starting quarterback Avery Johnson also rushed for 296 yards and seven touchdowns during his freshman season.

Edwards was one of four running backs who has transferred out of the Colorado this offseason after the Buffaloes finished last in FBS in rushing at 68.9 yards per game. Entering Year 2, Deion Sanders has picked up commitments from Miami (Ohio) transfer Rashad Amos and Ohio State transfer Dallan Hayden this month.
