With next year's move to the Pac-12, the state of California will be a very important recruiting ground for Colorado. New coach Tad Boyle and his staff have made the state a priority and Saturday landed their second Los Angeles area native when Spencer Dinwiddie committed to the Buffaloes.
Dinwiddie is a 6-foot-4 point guard at Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft and thought his bond with head Boyle and the Colorado staff was important.
"I had a great connection with Coach Boyle and he was on me early in the recruiting process and that meant a lot," Dinwiddie told Cali High Sports. "He's a great guy and they have a great staff that was hugely important to me."
Currently ranked a three-star prospect, Dinwiddie is a prospect with big upside and potential to outplay his rankings.
While he is quite skinny and has to add weight, he's quite skilled with the ball, gets others involved and has a great feel for the game. He's a sneaky scorer who shoots the ball pretty well and he is adding to his game at a rapid pace.
Dinwiddie, who ran with Pump 'N Run's Double Pump team during the summer, joins fellow three-star (and L.A. product) Askia Booker in Colorado's early recruiting class.
