2017 recruit Tyler Bey verbally committed to Colorado on Saturday, Las Vegas Knicks coach Lamar Bigby tells Scout.

"Tyler choose Colorado because of their ability to develop players and the relationships he developed with their coaching staff, coach [Tad] Boyle, coach [Jean] Prioleau and coach [Mike] Rohn, were huge in recruiting Tyler," Bigby said.
