Bishop Thomas dismissed from Colorado Buffaloes football team, sources say

The Florida State transfer was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules


Deion Sanders and Colorado are moving on from Bishop Thomas. The defensive lineman was dismissed from the program after being suspended indefinitely for violating team rules, according to sources.


An original four-star from Florida State, Thomas came to Boulder as Coach Prime’s original portal surge last year. The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder appeared in nine games for the Buffs in 2023 and recorded 117 defensive snaps with six tackles (two for loss) and a fumble recovery. He was a consensus top 100 player coming out of Bishop Moore Catholic (Florida).


While no official announcement was made by CU, a final show credit in Amazon Prime’s docuseries ‘Coach Prime’ said Thomas was suspended and his status for next season was “still being evaluated” by Deion Sanders and his staff.


With there being no sign of Thomas participating in offseason conditioning drills with the Buffaloes, many wondered if he would be reinstated this year. Especially, given the fact that Sanders has brought in a pair of four-star talents on the defensive line as of late. Colorado secured LSU’s Quency Wiggins and Pittsburgh’s Samuel Okunlola via the transfer portal and both will make an immediate impact.
