Buffs lock up top wing target

Sunday night, Tad Boyle and Colorado locked up a commitment from Detroit athlete Chris Jenkins. His commitment only made the Buffaloes hungry for more.
Monday night, Boyle traveled to watch Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei wing Xavier Johnson and walked away with a commitment.
"I picked Colorado because of their fast paced offense and free play," Johnson told "I could strive in that offense and do good."
Ranked the No. 83 player nationally in the 2012 Rivals150, the 6-foot-6 Johnson could turn out to be a huge score for Colorado.
While he's already ranked high, the four-star could ultimately end up playing to a level higher than his ranking.
He's got ideal size, is a fine athlete and has the type of inside-out game that should allow him to thrive in the Pac-12. The key for Johnson will be learning to turn his game on high each and every time he steps on the floor.
"I think I can just bring everything," said Johnson. "I think I'm a very versatile player and I could fit anywhere needed."
Johnson is the second four-star player to commit to the Buffs and joins the nation's No. 65 player Josh Scott and three-stars Jenkins and Wesley Gordon.
