I don’t know about you, but I like to get all my college recruiting info exclusively from the mean streets of Twitter. Sure, social media may be the least reliable source for information when certain tweeters have a biased agenda, but it doesn’t negate the fact that players can make the announcements themselves.
That is, assuming we can all safely travel the treacherous journey and avoid trolling, one-sided banter and folks using a message board as a source.
This brings us to new Colorado Buffaloes commit, Dom Collier. The guard was a four-star prospect who took to Twitter to let the world know he was joining the Colorado program. Oh, and he tried to make a funny by hashtagging #rollTad.
Good thing Collier is projected to be a really good player. I mean, his comedy really needs some work. I guess it is kind of funny that he is using the whole Roll Tide thing and then parlaying his new head coach’s name for the #rollTag hashtag. It could have been worse — so there is that.
Collier is a member of the 2014 recruiting class. His junior season in high school saw him score over 20 points per outing while helping his school win the Colorado Class 5A Championship and earning the state’s Mr. Basketball award.
This is a pretty big get for Tad Boyle, who is trying to continue to build the program into a Pac 12 darling.
