    Nice little write-up from ESPN. Sounds like he's an electric scorer who can light it up many ways, but the big knock on him is a low release point. Left handed and they expect him to be a 3 at the next level.

    Spent last season at Price H.S. before transferring -- which is where Ski played. So they should have overlapped one year. This year's team had 2012 CU target (and SDSU signee) Skylar Spencer and 2013 PG Chance Murray (who has an impressive offer list for a 3*).

    Sounds like he'd be a great get for the program. Bet surprising that we're the only school to offer to this point.

    Also says he plans on making a decision in about a month when AAU ball is over.

    I don't think we need another 6'5" wing, but it's hard to say "No" to a Top 100 prospect.

    Such a great problem to have. Who would have thought five years ago that we may have to turn away top 100 players? Incredible.

    I thought I'd read awhile back that Sandifer really struggled in a couple of tournaments this spring. I wonder if he'll keep that top 100 rating?

    I always kind of assumed it was Sandifer that Boyle was referencing in this quote about King:

    "There was one wing on our list who was as good or maybe a little bit better but there was no guarantee we were going to get that guy."

    Since he's speaking in the past tense, it seems to be one or the other. That being said, would Tad have communicated to Sandifer that they went in a different direction before now? Would Tad turn down a shooter like this that he was on very early? He has seemed to be a pretty strong CU lean from the beginning, and if he really does want to play at CU, I can't see Tad turning him down unless he has a really strong feeling about a top big like Adams. Also, an unexpected scholarship or two seem to open up each year, although there seems to be quite a bit less wiggle room for 2014.

    Honestly, that was exactly what I thought too.

    One thing to remember is that Adams is planning on committing sometime this summer too, so we should have an answer there soon. If we land Adams, I honestly don't think we take Sandifer unless Tad is confident in something changing (attrition, XJ going pro, etc.)

    It was Trey Kell that he was talking about there I believe.

    Big doubts over whether this kid will qualify. Also a very me-first player according to SDSU guy on Rivals.

    I want this guy because we can't turn down a top 100 player! Competition will make everyone better. I can see our practices being tougher than games!

    We could have the most number of lefties on a college bball team ever with XJ, Scott (he seems to like the left more anyway so I'm putting him in here), Fletcher and Sandifer. Has a college team ever had 4 lefties? That will definitely help us on the offensive end.

    week later, mizzou gets another big commit. I think Sandifer is going to struggle finding a home.
