    As of right now, it appears that CU will have one scholarship for 2013 (Chen's). That could change in the next few months as there are rumors that we might sign a sixth member for the 2012 class. We also could have attrition on the roster opening up other scholarships. Needless to say, no matter what, I'm feeling that it's safe that we will have at least one scholarship for the 2013 class. So I'm curious, of confirmed offers we have out right now, who would be your number one choice?

    Note: I removed players that have committed elsewhere, ruled us out, or appear to have ruled us out. I have a feeling Isaac Hamilton would win if I didn't and for obvious reasons. Also, the numbers in parenthesis are the stars according to Rivals/Scout/ESPN in that order.
    Who'd you vote for? Why?

    probably Marcus Lee and mostly for his ridiculous offer list. Like the versatility of Jaron Hopkins.

    Hopkins. We really need another ballhandler and I love big PG's.

    Isaac Hamilton is a SG/PG we need. Talk about national attention.

    After the loss to Stanford last night I am voting for a 6'8" power forward who can run the floor, defend and shoot like the ones Stanford has.

    What this team desperately needs is somebody who can create his own shot and hit it any time he needs to. Somebody like Levi Knutson. A guy who will make the defense come out to the perimeter and help us get back into games with his 3-point shooting. We're lamenting the loss of Burks and Higgins, but the guy I think we miss the most is Knutson.

    Knutson didn't create his own shot, he was a catch and shoot guy. I know what you mean though.

    Agreed that a shooter would open things up, especially for a guy like Scott inside. I'd be very happy with a dynamic point like Hopkins though. Anyone who can consistently score is much-needed!

    Finally got a chance to watch this and it definitely didn't disappoint. There's no doubt he's an elite athlete. The final clip, where he catches and turns in mid-air, and throws down the reverse oop, was really impressive, especially for a kid who will be playing the point in college. He made Jones look pretty good in a lot of those clips too; Torren didn't have to work very hard for a lot of his buckets.
