New, comments

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!
