    Welcome to Boulder




    The summer session at the University of Colorado gets underway on Tuesday, May 31st. With all of the attention paid to the “commitment” of Texas Tech quarterback David Webb the past few months, its easy to forget that there a significant number of new Buffs who will be taking classes for the first time this week.

    On Signing Day in February, CU signed 14 high school seniors and three junior college transfers. Only one from that group, wide receiver Kabion Ento, enrolled in January. Here’s a refresher course on some of the newest Buffs, in order of likelihood of playing in the fall of 2016:
