    BOULDER – The first college football gameday of the 2016 season in Boulder has started off with some enormous news regarding . . . The basketball program. On Saturday morning, Colorado landed two of their top target for 2017, four-star forwards Tyler Bey and D’shawn Schwartz.

    Schwartz ranks as a four-star across the board, and ESPN even has him at No. 79 among their top 100 in the country. At 6-foot-7, 217 pounds Schwartz joins an ever-increasing list of names to commit to Tad Boyle from the Colorado Springs area. At Sand Creek High School in his junior season, Schwartz averaged 19.9 points, 2.2 assists and 8.5 rebounds a game across 24 contests, according to MaxPreps.com.

    ESPN says this about the No. 1 2017 prospect out of the Centennial State:

    Schwartz is a lengthy left-handed wing-type who is exceptionally skilled. He doesn’t have great speed or bounce, but he is ultra-skilled. He affects the game with his face-up skills and savvy. In transition he can lead the fast break and his passing acumen is terrific. He always has his head up looking for open teammates and he is a clever attacker heading to the rim. He can finish with either hand in the paint and has the versatility to knock in 3-point shots.

    Schwartz has been compared to James Harden both positively and negatively. He has great touch and can be solid on defense but sometimes gets lost on the court. However, his talent cannot be denied. The coveted forward was sought after by Memphis, UNLV, Utah State, Webber State and Stanford.

    Bey, a six-foot-seven, 205 pound forward from Middlebrooks Academy in Los Angeles, Calif., was just as desired, boasting offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Fresno State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and others.

    ESPN says this about the No. 12 prospect out of California:

    Bey is an undersized 4-man who has a bevy of athleticism. He is a quick jumper who can spring up and down the floor. His motor is at a high-level and it’s demonstrated when attacking the rim or chasing down players in transition for the block. He has great speed and his bounce is tremendous. He can score over his left shoulder with some success, but as a whole, his post skills are raw. He gets most of his points off of put-backs, dunks in transition, and an occasional jump shot out to the elbow. He handles the ball fairly well in the open court and does a nice job of advancing the ball most of the time.

    Once again, Boyle has recruited two guys that fit what he has done in the past, a powerful left-handed wing with touch and an undersized four with talent that has been overlooked. Schwartz and Bey join Boyle’s 2017 class which has one more open spot.
