    Goose, Thanks for all you do staying on top of this stuff. Part of why this is the best site on the web for all things CU athletics.

    If the kid is good enough to get legitimate attention from major national programs I'd hate to see him leave the state. And a kid who is 6'5" with long arms and an all-around game sounds exactly like the profile that Tad has tried to focus on.

    1) it's weird flounder made that joke first.
    2) that should be black and gold
    3) that should be tad's face.
    4) Nice body control in the highlight vid. Anyone else reminded of a certain former CU player?

    AAU team sounds familiar.

    This is the type of guy that tad needs to keep in state.....im sure a solid season and a tourney trip (or a little run) this year would go a long way.

    Saw D'Shawn in attendance today. Witnessed a good crowd and us win against a solid Cal team.

    Coming into this offense as a SG/Wing in 2017 is about as good of a situation as a college basketball player could hope for.

    White, Fortune and Fletch all graduated... King maybe having left for the Association. What a great opportunity.

    With the season we're having right now, and the season we should have next year, with or without XJ, 2017 could be a really, really great recruiting class for us with White, Fortune, Fletcher, Gordon, XJ, and potentially King leaving. That's 6 open spots. Lots of available playing time for a team that should be coming off of two tourney runs.

    Loving that he wants to stay in the PAC-12. Hopefully non of the big schools leading the PAC join the mix. But if this kids keeps playing like he is, I am sure they will come around.

    The state seems to come up with a great player or two every couple of years. I love seeing Colorado kids being a big part of the Buff's success.

    Now that Tad is wrapping up '16, this needs to be our biggest priority in recruiting.

    Gershon just tweeted a top 3. Can't figure out how to link from phone & haven't read the Scout article he linked. Someone please bring the good news.

    Love our chances from the quotes. Great relationships. Now, he's with the same AAU club as Dom/Tory (maybe Jimmy?). Small forward looks like our biggest need heading into '17.

    Major playing time on an annual tournament team with strong relationships. UCONN & Furd can promise 1 of those things but not all 3.

    Sort of expect this kids suitor list will expand dramatically this summer with more exposure, and doubt this list stays static.

    After losing out on Whitt and Diallo, I'm turning my attention to D'Shawn.

    Now a 4* on all sites. Planning an August decision, with Cal and Stanford our main competition.

    Sounds like he impressed with his new AAU team in the first game.

    He's a must have for Tad and the Buffs, especially after losing out on Davis.
