    I would love to get someone from St Benedict's. Just the fact that CU is getting to know their coaches a little is good - hopefully we make a good impression. In my opinion, players that aren't showcased from these programs can end up being like Matt Cassel. Cassel just didn't have a time to shine while at USC. Kids from St. Benedicts, Oak Hill, etc. may be much better than advertised.

    No doubt. Dan Hurley is a better basketball coach than most college coaches around the country. Anyone coming out of his program is fundamentally strong and used to competition. Biruta will be ready to play from day one and probably has more offense than he has shown at St. Benedict's (there's only 1 basketball and that team is loaded every year).

    Biruta has been in Europe the past couple months before school started. He played for the Lithuanian National Team U18 in the European Championships. The team finished 7-2. Biruta was not a starter, but did average 5 points a game to go with 2.4 rebounds in 14 minutes per.

    ESPN has reported that Biruta has given a verbal commitment to Rutgers.
