All right, we're going to wrap it up here. Slow day but thanks to MJ and BuffFan for giving me something to do! haha. Enjoy the game Saturday and we'll do this again soon.....Pat R.Getting close to the top of the hour....if you're still interested in chiming in, now's the time!I'm not certain what the interest level is, but right now Smoky Hill's Jalen Weaver is the top ranked Colo prospect for the 2021 class. He would project as a wing player, but it's hard to say at this point what the Buffs' needs will be for that class. I like the idea of adding another 7-footer in the aforementioned Lovering kid from Wyoming.Who would you say is the next top in state player CU should grab in the next couple of years?I don't think so. He's going to get other opportunities, but I don't think that's one he'd be interested in.Do we need to worry about Rick George leaving for the USC ?We'll make sure we get that info in our game day coverage tomorrow.I apologize I'm not sure. Brian Howell keeps better tabs on the football recruiting than me.Quiet on here today, not sure anyone knew it was Friday. What football recruits are in town?Haha. Yeah, slow Friday here. I hope everyone is out enjoying this day. I don't know if it is a 'must' get, but I think they'd be thrilled to land Tari Eason, a 4-star forward out of Washington. With Barthelemy in the mix next year and the wing commits they already have, adding a frontcourt player has to be the next priority.it like I am interviewing you! If you had to pick the one player cu is recruiting that has not committed that would be the next must get, who would it be?It depends. Sometimes they come in Saturday mornings if they have their own games on Friday nights. Visits can't be more than 48 hours.Do the FB recruits come in starting Friday night or, better, what is the time boundary for weekend visits?Not to my knowledge this weekend. However I know Lawson Lovering from Cheyenne has a visit scheduled for the USC football weekend.Any BBall recruits in town?Seems like we're having a slow start here but I'm tuned in and feel free to fire away whenever.Just posted a story on some chats I had with CU coaches this week on the name and likeness legislation that passed in California and may be coming here next year. Would be happy to discuss that issue too, as I could only get into the story only a few of a lot of great quotes.You're very welcome. Nothing new that isn't out there already. Game-time decisions on Johnson and Shenault for CU. Same I believe with Tate for UA. Will be interesting to see who is under center for Wildcats. Two very different quarterbacks.and Thank You for doing this every week BTW.injury reports from either the BUFFS or az ??I'll be happy to take your thoughts and questions on hoops, football, and whatever else for the next hour or so.Thanks for tuning in everybody. A reminder the basketball team will host an open practice/scrimmage Saturday ahead of the football game. Practice starts at Events Center at 11 am with the Black-and-Gold scrimmage at 12:15. Will be three 10-minute sessions featuring different player combinations.Greetings Buffs fans! Thanks for tuning in on this fine Friday and we'll get rolling at 1 p.m. here.
