2016 Arizona wing Cameron Satterwhite decommits from Colorado

After making an early commitment to Colorado, 2016 Arizona wing Cameron Satterwhite decommitted on Friday.

Cameron Satterwhite, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound wing from Gilbert (Ariz.) Christian is back on the board after decommitting from Colorado on Friday.

The 2016 prospect made an early pledge to the Buffs but will no longer end up in Boulder.

"They wanted him to reclassify and go to 2017," said Satterwhite's coach with the Arizona Power, John Ortega.

"Tad (Boyle) made it very clear that he made a commitment to them so they're making a commitment to him. Tad was very honest and up front and I respect Colorado; it's not like they pulled the carpet from him. They put it in Cam's hands, he just decided to go in another direction."

CU presented the option for Satterwhite to reclassify to 2017 and the Buffs would honor his commitment in that class.

"Cam didn't want to do that," Ortega said. "Talking to Cam and his family, they didn't want to figure out what to do for a year as a post grad or something else. Even if it means he has to go to a lower conference."

Satterwhite tore his ACL in July but Ortega feels that the rising senior is on path to be healthy as a college freshman.

"His doctor said he'll be cleared in April and will be ready to play first game of the season," he said.
