    Unlike football, which waits until the dead of February to ink the recruits, basketball allows teams to get the heavy lifting out of the way before the season even starts.* The first of two signing periods, the early signing period allows recruits to commit to their program of choice and play their senior seasons without the hassle of recruiting weighing on their performance.* They also lock in the guarantee of a scholarship, essentially insuring themselves against injury or other terrible happenstance.

    Today marks the start of a full week of early signing availability, and all of the Buffs five commitments are expected to sign during the week, if not today.* With little opportunity to improve the team with the 2013 class (seeing as how the team has only one junior: walk-on transfer Sabatino Chen) the 2012 class is essential to the future growth of the program.

    All told, three native Coloradans and two out-of-staters look to make CU very competitive in the future.* This is a solid class, easily one of the best, if not the best, in school history, with two of the commitments considered top-100 players nationally.* It's focused on high-motor players who showcase plenty of athleticism - perfect fits in the up-tempo style of ball that Coach Boyle likes the Buffs to play on both ends of the court.

    Many consider this class to be one of the top-20 in the nation, and one of the better landed in the Pac-12 this fall.* While it would have been nice if Coach Boyle and his staff were able to land all of the top-flight recruits interested in coming to Boulder, I'm still more than satisfied with how the class turned out.

    In this post I'll be recapping the class; touching on each player's recruiting profile and how I see them impacting the Buffs over the coming years.
