With XJ likely to come back, that leaves Josh Scott as the final departing senior. Buffs desperately need to sign a young big. A guy who needs to develop a bit is something that CU can handle in consideration of how veteran they'll be next year, so it's not the worst thing in the world that we're likely looking at a developmental guy at this point. 2016-17 big man roster: Wesley Gordon (5th year senior) Tory Miller (older junior - 1 year of prep school) Kenan Guzonjic (4th year junior) Xavier Johnson -- if Tad slides him to the "4" (5th year senior) We need a young guy in the mix in a bad way. After striking out in the fall signing period with a number of high profile targets, here are some names that have been associated with CU who are unsigned and may be the guy. 5 Bigs to Watch 1. Dallas Walton The skinny, 6'9" PF from Arvada West (formerly played for Ralston Valley) is a superior athlete with a soft touch on his shot and good offensive skills. Injured a knee in October of last year, missing all of his junior season and this year's summer league. His first game is December 1st and if he's back I think his upside is higher than De'ron Davis. Considered the #2 prospect out of Colorado this year despite last year's injury. 2. Harry Froling The big 6'9" 230 lb Aussie is rated a 4* on some sites. He is very open in his recruiting, with a visit to Wake Forest taken so far but no commitment. He's a shooter with a big body. Named Colorado among his Top 10 in August (Froling’s list, in no particular order, are Oregon, Oregon St, Boise St, Colorado, Kansas St, Miami, SMU, Creighton and Illinois.) Was MVP of Australia's U18 Junior Championship, where he average 22.4 ppg, 14.1 rpg and 3.1 apg. He compares his game to Kevin Love. 3. Lucas Siewert This 6'9" 220 lb face-up 4 has some ball skills. 4* rating on a couple sites. Originally from Brazil (plays internationally for them) and goes to Los Angeles's Cathedral H.S. Siewert was an early commit for ASU, but de-committed when Sendek was fired. Buffs have been in contact, but it's unclear whether there is active recruitment in process. Highlights below show a smooth shooter. 4. Majok Kur The 6'10" center from South Dakota (by way of Sudan) looks like a Wes Gordon style guy. Very willing passer who rebounds, blocks shots and has a developing offensive game. Focused on education and is thinking about an electrical engineering degree so he can go back and help out his home country after graduating. (Get him on campus for a visit and talking to Stephane Nembot.) Averaged 15/12/5 (blocks) his first year in the US and heads into his senior year a rising sleeper. Highlights and article HERE. 5. Adrean Johnson Rivals reports an offer to the 6'8" forward from Red Oak (Dallas) HS who plays AAU for Team Texas Elite. Impressed at the Great American Shootout this summer, leading to the following write-up from Rivals' TexasHoops: Texas Hoops Analysis: ADREAN is a developing post player that has shown a ton of upside. He plays with his back to the basket and gets wide on the block. He has good hands and footwork to go along with a lean frame. He scores at the rim and plays above the rim. He is a nice shot-blocker, rebounder, and athlete. Was supposed to announce on 11/11, but did not.
