Former Arkansas running back Isaiah Augustave, who rushed for a combined 181 yards in his last two games for the Razorbacks, announced on social media Thursday afternoon that he is transferring to Colorado.

The 6-foot-2, 208-pound Augustave played as a true freshman in 2023 for Arkansas, totaling 35 carries for 202 yards and one touchdown, and catching three passes for seven yards in 11 games.

He earned Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week honors for his Nov. 18 effort in a 44-20 victory over Florida International. Augustave rushed 14 times for 101 yards, a 7.2-yard average. The next week in the season finale, he rushed 15 times for 80 yards and his lone score.

Augustave, who will have three years of eligibility remaining, chose Colorado over offers from Florida State, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Utah and other programs.

The Buffaloes' running back room includes Ohio State transfer Dallan Hayden as well as Micah Welch, Charlie Offerdahl and Brandon Hood.

Colorado thought it had a commitment from transfer Rashad Amos, who changed his decision to Ole Miss on May 18. Amos played at South Carolina (2020-22) and Miami of Ohio, where he rushed for 1,075 yards and 13 TDs last season.

Augustave was a four-star prospect in the Class of 2023 out of Naples (Fla.) High School, where as a senior was rated a top-15 running back in the country and the No. 38 player in Florida by 247Sports.
