Bzdelik has a total of four scholarships to give for the 2009-2010 season, but he is likely to wait to award the fourth until the late signing period in the spring.
The CU program is being built with versatile players at all positions. Bzdelik covets athletes with a defensive mind set, who can dribble, shoot and pass at all points on the floor.
He believes the three prospects he expects to sign this week meet that criteria. Here is a look at the newest Buffs.
Alec Burks, 6-4, 180, shooting guard
A product of Grandview, Mo., who chose the Buffs over fellow Big 12 Conference foes Kansas State and Missouri as well as Wichita State and Santa Clara. He is the son of former NBA player Steve Burks. He averaged 20 points a game as a junior and only began receiving significant recruiting attention last summer. He is a three-star prospect with Scout.com.
Keegan Hornbuckle, 6-5, 180, small forward
Another player who blossomed after his junior season. Hornbuckle has solid range and consistency with his jump shot and must continue to improve his ball skills. He chose the Buffs over offers from Arizona, Arizona State and Santa Clara. He is a three-star prospect from North Hollywood, Calif., who is rated the 34th best small forward in the nation by Scout.com.
Shane Harris-Tunks, 6-10, 225, center
For the second consecutive year, Bzdelik has gone down under to Australia to land a prospect. Harris-Tunks will come to Boulder from Canberra, Australia. He has played for the junior team in his home land and chose the play in Boulder over Gonzaga and Washington State. Harris-Tunks won't blow away anyone with his offensive skills at this point, but he has been described as a grinder who hustles and works hard. Just the sort of player Bzdelik hopes to build with in his efforts to make Colorado a winner.
