    No profiles on him yet (we're #1! YES!), but here's his twitter account and here's his MaxPreps page. 13.4 ppg, 4 rpg, 3 apg last year as a sophomore.

    Great profile picture. It will be fun to see his progress next season. Great statline for a small Sophomore.

    Going off of that sick profile pic, his vertical has to be well over 40 inches, right?

    what is going on in Colorado all of the sudden, we are finally getting some legit basketball players at the high school level.

    Not to be a dick, but I realize I will come off as a dick; Colorado talent has always been here, but the new stuff isn't really much better than the old stuff. Be cautious.

    In the past, one of the big problems is that CU has recruited the wrong in-state players.

    And Chase Foster may be in the mix for an offer too.

    True. And there have been some successful players from Colorado recently. I hope the trend continues and the three we have coming in next year are among them.

    I've heard a LOT of good stuff about Foster. He might blow up this summer.

    Only an issue if he is done growing. If not add a couple inches and you have a 6'3" kid which is fine.

    Tad seems to have an eye for guys who aren't finished developing yet physically or in their games.

    He is a sophmore, so he is what, maybe 15? I would say there is some growing to do.

    Paige is a really intriguing prospect to me. He's completely overshadowed by Collier and Perkins, but whether it's this summer or next season, he just seems like the type of kid who could absolutley blow up. Assuming we don't land both Collier and Perkins, I wouldn't be upset at all about taking a commitment from Paige over a bigger-name player.

    Some talent has always been here, but in real short supply and relatively inexperienced, since the talent was spread so thinly and across not only the state, geographically (different leagues) but across HS classifications (4A, 3A etc.) A very good Col HS player may never have met an equal on the court, but once or twice during his HS career, especially bigs (who remain rare in Colo). Now with the advent of AAU yr.-round ball, kids play more games against much better competition and with greater exposure.

    fify......Who in your opinion was "wrong"? RP stated openly there was little or no D1 talent in Colorado and came in real late on guys like Fazekas or didn't even bother with guys like Jason Smith or Sean Oguirri.

    I think in-state recruiting is getting better. In the past decade, the only 2 guys CU didn't sign that I think would have impacted the program were Matt Bouldin and Reggie Jackson. Every year isn't great, but 2014 looks like it might be as good or better than the 2012 group that was so good for the Buffs.

    Will (Rivals) located some highlights. I can see why Tad has offered.

    I think Paige can turn into a petty good shooter. From everything I've seen/read, he's pretty active defensively too. He's raw, but that's actually not all that bad. We're at a point where all of the freshmen aren't going to see the floor anyway. I wouldn't mind seeing him sit for a year and develop, then turn into a pretty good player in time.

    He doesn't miss lay-ups and can hit the mid-range jumper. Lefties usually have an advantage in BB, because not only do they do things "backwards", but having been forced to live in a right-handed world, are more adaptively ambidexterous. (Want an easy example of that advantage? Try brushing you teeth with your left hand!)

    I think we'll take Collier and then an out-of-state SG and PF

    Probably, since I think Pickens would be the priority, but I don't think Paige is far down that list.
