Taylor Upshaw stayed five years at the University of Michigan, becoming a three-year letterman in 2019, 2020, and 2021.

Last season as a graduate student, Upshaw capped off his career in Ann Arbor with a huge play on the biggest stage.

He hauled in an interception against Ohio State in Columbus, helping lead Michigan to its most memorable win of the season.

Now, Upshaw is taking his talents to the Pacific-12 conference, announcing that he has committed to new head coach Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes through the transfer portal.

The Buffaloes finished dead last in the Pac-12 last season with a record of 1-8 in conference, 1-11 overall.

Upshaw brings a solid, veteran presence, and a multi-dimensional game at the defensive end position.

He has shown the ability to keep contain on the outside, to rush the passer, and to stop the run in his general area.

Listed at 6-foot-4, 255 pounds, the Bradenton, Florida native often played bigger than his size.

Last season, Upshaw recorded 12 tackles, two sacks and one interception.

Colorado fans seemed excited about the commitment in the comments section of his announcement.

Michigan fans also congratulated him on his decision.
