Former Mountaineer DL Taijh Alston Commits to Colorado



Taijh Alston has become the first West Virginia transfer to choose his next destination to play football.

The former Mountaineer defensive lineman announced his commitment to the University of Colorado via a video on his Instagram posted Sunday morning. The original news came from CU Sports Report, a branch of Rivals that covers the Buffaloes.

Alston now joins an influx of players who have announced their intentions to play in Boulder, Colorado, for new Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders, who was introduced during a press conference at the university on Dec. 4.

He entered the NCAA Transfer Portal for the second time on Dec. 8. Alston’s career began in 2017 at East Carolina before moving to Copiah-Lincoln Community College the next year. He has spent the last four seasons with the Mountaineers, appearing in 28 games.
