For those of you looking for CU to go get a long distance sharpshooter, you have your man. From Illinois Prep Bulls-eye:Colorado has offered Nate Taphorn, a 2013 SF from Illinois Wolves (IL), per his coach.
Other links:There is no question that Taphorn has ideal size and shooting range when it comes to projecting as a D1 2-guard. He is a terrific spotup shooter, utilizes screens well and has a sweet looking stroke as well as a quick release. While we would like to see Taphorn continue to work on his ball skills, he does possess considerable toughness. In addition to his shooting prowess beyond the arc, Taphorn has shown the ability to battle around the basket and score in the paint area.
