Colorado basketball adds three recruits

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffs are starting to raid recruiting ground traditionally held by Pac-12 powerhouses.

Since Colorado's move to the Pac-12, the Buffaloes have inked five recruits from Southern California. Now, they're heading to other points within the Pac-12's foot print to nab some of the best players in the west, including their class of three they received letters of intent from yesterday. The Buffaloes class was ranked in the top-25 nationally by some recruiting services.

The most heralded recruit of the class is 6'5 shooting guard Jaron Hopkins from Mesa, Arizona. Hopkins was rated the 109th best recruit in the nation after averaging 21 points and seven rebounds a game at Basha High School. He is considered the top prospect in Arizona by some recruiting services.

The Buffs also signed Tre'shaun Fletcher, a 6'5 small forward from Tacoma, Washington who also held scholarship offers from the Arizona St. Sun Devils, Oregon St. Beavers and Washington St. Cougars. He averaged 18 points and 11 rebounds a game for Lincoln High School last season.

Finally, the Buffs inked a 6'8 power forward from Texarkana, Texas in Dustin Thomas. He averaged 20 points and 14 rebounds for Pleasent Grove High School last season.
