Two visitors for hoops

The Colorado basketball program now has four scholarships available and still finds itself in serious need of a big man and a wing. It just happens to be hosting a pair of players this week who could fill those needs. has the details.

Majok Majok, (pronounced mah-juk mah-juk) a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward from Northfield, Mass., is scheduled to finally visit Colorado this week.

Colorado began recruiting Majok under former coach Jeff Bzdelik and has continued to pursue him under new coach Tad Boyle. Majok was originally supposed to visit CU two weeks ago prior to the coaching change.

The other visitor scheduled to come to Boulder is Andre Roberson, a 6-foot-7 forward from Wagner High School in Converse, Texas, near San Antonio.

Roberson has an offer from Tulsa and several small school programs. He also has received interest from programs such as Nevada and Boise State.

Northfield Mount Hermon coach John Carroll said Majok is "a tremendous post player who just attacks the rim" in an interview with earlier this month.

Northfield Mount Hermon went 23-8 this season and advanced to the prep national championship game. Majok had 11 double-doubles and finished one game this season with 19 points and 26 rebounds.

Colorado is in need of a tougher, more athletic post presence than the options currently available on the roster. The Buffs were one of the worst rebounding teams in the country last season and might have won as many as three or four more games if they had been just a little bit better in that part of the game.
