Buffaloes Land First Commit Of 2013 Class In Arizona Guard Jaron Hopkins

Well, this is one way to help us get over the sting of the loss to CSU on Saturday. The Colorado Buffaloes have just received a commitment from Arizona point guard, Jaron Hopkins, considered to be one of the top guards in the country from an area that Colorado doesn't normally recruit. This is a fantastic way to kick off what will be a very small 2013 class.

Stay tuned for more from Parker. Welcome aboard, Jaron!
