Meanwhile, the Daily Camera reported that Dale VanWright, out of Houston, Texas, who was one of the prize recruits in a class Patton has called the best in his tenure, was denied admission by the school, too. VanWright has been released from his scholarship and will either attend a prep school in San Antonio or perhaps enroll at another university this year.
The Buffs now have 10 known players on scholarship for the upcoming school year. It's expected Patton will try and sign three players to fill his limit. Six-foot-10 center Marc VanBurck was leaning strongly to signing with the Buffs, according to his Luther High (Saskatchewan, Canada) coach. But that hasn't happened yet, according to a CU team spokesperson.
The current CU roster looks like this:
Kalvin Bay, 6-1, Fr., PG.
Dominique Coleman, 6-3, Sr., G
