In today's Thorburn chat, Ryan stated with certainty that Shannon Sharpe will not be with the program this year. Additionally, Mills is still deciding.
"Ben Mills is still on campus going through "Maymester." The big guy is weighing some options whether to transfer to another program or remain at CU. Shannon Sharpe will not be back next year. That means Boyle will have at least two scholarships for 2012 (Sabatino Chen is the only senior next season) and at least three if Andre Roberson were to turn pro. The Buffs plan to bank Sharpe's scholarship for 2013 unless an "impact" transfer were to join the program."
