    Ndao is the first known recruiting target of Tad Boyle.

    Very long and athletic combo forward. Skinny and limited on the offensive end, Ndao will take some time to develop but could be special.

    Signed with Boston College in the fall period, but was let out of his scholarship after the coaching change. CU just popped up this weak as one of his top choices, although no offer has been reported.

    He was on a Senegal touring team with Aziz N'Diaye in 2008.

    Not that it matters, but ESPN has him rated at:
    [89] - "High Major prospect" meaning that he has potential to start & significantly contribute as a freshman for most Div. I programs.

    Toby Veal ('08), Shane Harris-Tunks, & Alec Burks were all listed in this category as well, so who knows. H-T was also an [89], Veal an [88] while Burks was rated at [87].

    I assume that everyone forgot about Papa, just like I did?

    Well guess who was was on an official visit to CU this weekend?

    The Buffs may be getting the 2010 Power Forward we were hoping for. Cross your fingers and stay tuned.

    Also, Scout has updated its grade on Papa. He's now a 4* prospect who they consider the 15th best power forward in the nation for this class.

    Still hasn't made up his mind.

    "Colorado, Alabama-Birmingham and St. Joseph's are the schools that he is still considering," said Montverde Academy head coach Kevin Sutton.
