Colorado Basketball: 4-Star SF decommits from Buffs

As if the news regarding Colorado Buffaloes basketball couldn’t get any worse today, four-star recruit Bobi Klintman has reportedly decommitted from the school according to Joe Tipton of On3Sports.

Klintman committed to the Buffaloes less than three weeks ago on April 14th. He was previously committed to the University of Maryland but decommitted from there after hearing the news of head coach Mark Turgeon getting fired.

Bobi has received offers previously from schools such as New Mexico, Utah, Utah State, VCU and Wyoming just to name a few.

Klintman made himself the third recruit of Colorado’s 2022 class and now it’s just down to two.

Four-star Joe Hurlburt out of Enderlin, North Dakota joins the Buffs after winning Mr. Basketball in the state of North Dakota. He’s projected to share time with Lawson Lovering at the center position, or perhaps even earn some minutes at the four.

Joe chose Colorado over Big 10 schools such as Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota and Nebraska.

R.J. Smith was the other signee, coming out of Damien High School in Chino, California. Smith is rated a three-star on 24/7 Sports with a composite rating of 82. He received offers from teams such as New Mexico, Portland, San Diego and UC Davis.

You have to wonder if the news regarding Colorado forward Jabari Walker played any part in his decision.

Samaki Walker, father of Jabari, made it known that he is “all-in” on pursuing his dream of playing professional basketball.

Fortunately for Colorado, they will have players such as Quincy Allen and Javon Ruffin returning from injury. Both were out the entire season and expect to find themselves in Tad Boyle‘s rotation.
