Transfer Tracker: Colorado WR Braedin Huffman-Dixon enters transfer portal
The Transfer Portal has changed the landscape of college football. So at Rivals we introduce to you the Transfer Tracker, where we analyze players entering the portal and rate them on what kind of impact they could make at their new home.
AS A RECRUIT
One of the first players to really take advantage of the introduction of spring official visits, Huffman-Dixon committed to the Buffaloes shortly after an official visit to Boulder during the spring of his junior year. He had offers from Oregon, Nebraska and several others.
Huffman-Dixon's career with Colorado never got off the ground as he only dressed for three games and never saw action during his freshman year in 2019. He announced his plans to transfer earlier this month. He will have at least three years of eligibility remaining at his next school.
POTENTIAL LANDING SPOTS
Arizona State and Nebraska were both in the mix for Huffman-Dixon during his recruitment but because he shut things down so early in the process and both of those schools recently signed several wide receivers, it's tough to project if they might be a match. It seems more likely that Huffman-Dixon could end up closer to home at a Group of Five option such as San Diego State or perhaps UNLV.
"Huffman-Dixon was a high three-star prospect out of high school with good size and a solid frame to add weight. He had average speed and was overshadowed by Bru McCoy his senior year and regressed a bit through his high school career after putting up big numbers early.
"He’s a rangy receiver but hasn’t shown much to go on at Colorado aside from being on the scout team. The ability is there to be a solid receiver depending on where he lands and he has always shown reliable hands." -- National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell
Impact Rating: 5.7 out of 10
The Transfer Portal continues to change the way college football programs recruit and mange their rosters so we here at Rivals.com continue to evolve our coverage. Each time a player of note enters the portal, we will examine their potential impact on the college football landscape and assign an impact rating, both when they enter the portal and when they choose a destination. The scale is from 1-10 and the description below explains the scoring scale.
1.1-3.9 — Not a big impact expected, likely a non-starter and down the bench depth player.
4.1- 6.0 — A solid impact can be expected in the right scenario and has the potential to battle for a starting job.
7.1-8.9. — A high impact player who won’t change a program but will certainly be a very good contributor and starter.
9.1- 9.9 — A very high impact player who should start the moment he steps on the field and will change the outlook of a program immediately.
10 — A franchise transfer who has a chance to be an All American and one of the elite players in college football.
