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.
Pic from SC?
It was in a story on the front page. It was him in the middle of about 50 family and friends after the game. Pretty cool.
Simply awesome. Great story of overcoming adversity, and has such a future ahead.
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.
