    Colorado coach Jeff Bzdelik believes he landed more than a keeper from Grandview High in suburban Kansas City, Mo. The former Nuggets coach said he is not afraid to "go out on a limb" and predict Burks will some day play in the NBA.

    "It's both on him and me to realize his potential," Bzdelik said. "And if he (works hard) and stays healthy, and his head and heart are in the right place, he has a chance to be really special."

    "Alec is very athletic, very versatile," said junior forward Marcus Relphorde, another newcomer. "Especially as a freshman, he's pretty advanced with all the things he can do. He creates (opportunities) for everybody, as well as for himself. He's very valuable to this team."

    "Sometimes when Alec starts to make a move you're thinking, 'What are you doing?' " Higgins said. "And then he turns it into a layup. His talent is ridiculous."

    I love the quote from Coach B. If I was speechwriting for him, I don't think I could have come up with a more perfect thing for him to say.

    And we are very fortunate to have Burks. It's going to be a fun ride watching him play during his time at CU.

    A good article and this team can use it. That's probably a double-edged sword, come to think of it. CU's abundance of NBA talent didn't seem to make a good impression.
