Running back Patrick Carr leaving Colorado can confirm that sophomore running back Patrick Carr has decided to transfer out of Colorado's program. The Texas native is expected to transfer to a college closer to his home in The Woodlands.

The speedy Carr was one of the Buffaloes' top rated signees from the Class of 2015 and he was listed as a co-starter at running back with Phillip Lindsay following spring practices, so his decision to leave Boulder comes as a surprise.

Carr rushed for 272 yards and had 52 yards receiving as true freshman. He was the only Colorado running back that averaged less than four-and-a-half yards per carry in 2015 but he drew praise from the Buffs' coaches for his potential.

The Buffaloes are still expected to have at least four scholarshiped running backs on the roster this season: Juniors Phillip Lindsay, Michael Adkins and Donovan Lee, and true freshman Beau Bisharat. Redshirt freshman running back Dino Gordon remains suspended but he is still enrolled at CU and is expected to re-join the team at some point in the future. True freshman Anthony Julmisse was brought in as an "offensive weapon" and could also factor in at running back going forward.
