Get this guy and the Buffs can officially claim AZ as a Buff state.
Next year's team is going to look very different with 5 new guys signed + Barthelemy. If we can find someone in that group that can be a consistent shooter we could be really good. I think Barthelemy as a back PG will be huge too. That's assuming Kin comes back.You have to think how Tad and the buffs handled the Battey- Da Silva collision helped here. Sneakily excited about how we finished this class. I know we've struck out with internationals, but Tristan Da Silva excites me, his older brother has stuck through 3 years at Stanford and really developed his game, you can only hope Tristan has the same mindset to go along with great bloodlines. Plus Jeriah Horne gives us a stop gab for Jabari or Tristan to develop their games slower. Amped for next year already.
Interesting, the LA school are both low on this list. Seems like traditional recruiting powers Oregon, UCLA, USC, Arizona have all switched up their philosophies. USC have hired Mobley's dad and still have gotten some blue chip talent, but also relying more on transfers (adlesh, utomi last year, tahj eaddy, and isaih white to round out their roster depth this year. Oregon every year is a rotating circus, but altman thrives with that, after so much roster turnover last year, didn't have a ton of spots to fill, but always does transfers and freshman. UCLA with Cronin, recruiting tough defensive minded, lost Nix which was huge and also hit transfer market with Juzang (which UCLA historically does not). Arizona with a huge shift (seems miller got tired of turnover and went all in with internationals) with 7 international players this year. Which he has had luck with Markennen, Rustic, josh green, Ayton, etc come to mind. So will be interesting to see how it all plays out this year. I like CU's class a lot!
