I think he may be one of Tad's best recruits ever. Not the best player by any means, but he has everything you need in a great college player. Resilient as evidenced by overcoming significant physical trials just to play. Work ethic to get himself not only back, but to a level where he can compete in the pac12. Team guy that truly seems to care about the team more than his numbers. And I love the pic of him with all of his family and friends at the sc game. The kid is a player, and I hope that he and the other young guys on this team can grow together for the next few seasons. This has been a tough year, but I am optimistic about the next 2-3 years with this group.

That kid inspires me. I'd love to have his motivation level.

I think the next 3.5 years will be a lot of fun to watch.

Seems like a guy that people love to be around. Looks like his teammates love him.

With or without basketball his character will give him a chance to be very successful in life. Personable, respectful, self-motivated, and able and willing to overcome obstacles will carry a person far in life.

Definitely one of Tad’s best recruiting jobs. Had to beat out Purdue and Miami who have had more success in better leagues.

Always seemed to me that he had the best leadership qualities of this young core. In that, he’s vocal, personable, and has experienced adversity that can inspire others.

In recruiting, schools say that choosing a school isn’t a 4 year choice, it’s a 40 year choice to sell kids on the academics

This is the opposite. Battey is a 40 year recruit. I’m glad he’s on the team now, but I’m also very glad that he will represent CU for the rest of his life. The dude is just awesome

Tweeked his lower back last night. I’ve been there, done that. For me, it has been a thing where it is debilitating for the day or two after then improves pretty quickly. Maybe with some muscle relaxers and therapy he can be ready to go against UA.
