    Reports are now coming in from the California recruits.

    Against all odds, it looks like everyone except Justin Favors has cleared the NCAA as well as CU admissions (Favors needs a test score).

    Welcome:

    Jered Bell
    Keenan Canty
    Justin Castor
    Cordary Clark
    Donnie Duncan
    Henley Griffon
    Evan Harrington
    Nick Hirschman (been here since January, but welcome again anyway)
    Tony Jones
    Trea Jones
    Alex Lewis (early welcome, can't wait to see you in January)
    Harold Mobley
    Daniel Munyer
    Kirk Poston
    Eric Richter (see the Hirschman note)
    Kyle Slavin
    Terrel Smith
    Justin Torres
    Chidera Uzo-Diribe
    Lowell Williams

    And sending out karma in hopes that we'll eventually see Justin Favors at CU.

    ******************

    I know this class wasn't very highly rated by the services, but a big reason was that academic questions scared away recruiters on a lot of these guys. And several more who didn't do much as juniors. In a way, focusing on the late recruiting period helped us here as we were able to see fall grades on some of these guys and wait for senior film on others. Lots of guys that were rated as high 3* prospects despite their light offer lists and we came out on the winning side of a bunch of calculated risks.

    Anyway, I was bracing myself for losing 4-6 guys out of this class. I'm pretty excited right now.

    Great news. As I said before, i like the class and don't give a sh*t what the rating services had to say. GO BUFFS.

    P.S. We better start winning because I am already hearing tons of smack from USC fans. SC is the new Neb.

    Ask them about life before Pete Carrol when they used to draw 50K or if Stanford has stopped scoring yet.

    Just curious, anybody else wondering if the academic window is being opened to restock the cupboard, as it were, to prep for Pac 12 play. It is pretty unusual to have all but one player qualify around here.

    Great news, I wasnt expecting this at all but hope Favors is studying up on that ACT or SAT and gets in too.

    Spoke too soon on Donnie Duncan. He only graduated with a 2.0 from high school and will need to grayshirt this fall while taking a few courses at a local community college. He'll join the Buffs in January (assuming he gets at least all "B's". Other colleges are free to recruit him, but he says that he's a solid commitment and will not be looking around.

    Just confirmation that he's not on campus. No word on whether he'll make it in, grayshirt, sign somewhere else after qualifying late, or go to a JUCO. Wish I could tell you.

    what is the source for Mobley? Is he on campus AND fully qualified? I can't find any links on this but that is huge news.
