BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Tad Boyle has just produced the best recruiting class in CU basketball history.
The University of Colorado men’s basketball head coach announced to boosters Wednesday that the Buffaloes have signed five incoming freshmen. Three of the players are from Colorado, including 6-foot-8 forward Wesley Gordon from Sierra High School and 6-foot-9 Josh Scott out of Lewis-Palmer.
“Being close to home, I felt like a star. I’m not saying I’m Chauncey Billups or anything but I feel very welcome there and I can’t wait to bring Colorado back to a place of dominance,” said Scott, who is considered the best player in the state.
“They expected us to bring them back to hopefully a national champship but our freshman year just go to the tournament and make a big impact,” Gordon told CBS4.
Boyle’s class was rated No. 21 nationally by ESPN.com, according to CUBuffs.com.
“The recruiting class we had last year helped us this year. This recruiting class is going to help us as we go forward. Good players want to play with good players,” Boyle said.
The announcement was made at the school’s new volleyball and basketball practice facility.
