    I have yet to see that we've offered, but both Rivals and Scout have us interested in him. With his talent level, I have to imagine that we have offered, but haven't seen confirmation anywhere. Because he's a top 100 guy, I threw a profile together just in case.

    He is ranked #5 in the state by Cali High Sports.

    However, they don't list CU as a school that he is considering. Usually they're very good with the California prospects, but this is a profile from June 13th. They're in the process of re-doing their countdown of the top players and are currently on #9, Richard Longrus.

    I swear to God when I typed this I legitimately didn't know.

    Johnson will be visiting us this weekend.

    That would be Austin Rivers, a top 5 member of the class of 2011 that Johnson is dunking on.

    Every day just brings more good news for the program. Caruso, Johnson, Hield, Sanders, Wallace, Hairston...if 2 of these guys sign, we're about to see a major infusion of talent! I really like Johnson though. He looks like the most athletic of the bunch and could be the type of finisher who would really excel in a running offense. Pair him with one of the shooters in Caruso, Hield, or Sanders, and I really don't care who gets the 5th schollie, or if that's held for '13.

    SIXTH schollie. With Cain deciding to not play, that opens up a sixth slot for us to use this year. Now we won't use all 6 this year (barring Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson wanting to pair up at the Foam Dome), but that does give us a little more flexibility.

    As for Johnson, everyone here knows my crush on Caruso. And honestly, I think I would probably take Alex over Johnson right now, but it's a hell of a lot closer than you would think. Johnson has the highest ceiling of any of these guys IMO.

    Right...I'm kind of assuming that 5 would be the max though. A 6-man class just gets too big, and one of those top-100 recruits will end up getting squeezed out of the rotation, in all likelihood. With the talent interested this year, though, I do like having an extra schollie to work with. If we "only" land 2 of the remaining recruits, it's not a bad thing to end up with two players next year, either.

    Saw Xavier at the stampede and graced with a nice " Welcome to Boulder Xavier be a Buff" His parents were pumped that I knew who he was.

    Nice work, UBL.

    I hope the Johnson family felt the love. I want Xavier to be a Buff in the worst way.

    Sounds like he had a good trip here, but doesn't expect to commit anywhere until the spring signing period.

    He had a great trip. I thought he was going to pull the trigger. Now I'm left thinking that he wants to see how we do this season before making a commitment.

    Time to hope that this board is right about our prospects for the upcoming season then. If we do what the Sporting News expects, we won't land him.

    Taking the recruits to the game is definitely an interesting risk

    Don't feel too particularly confident on Johnson, Hield, or Saunders
