Quick-Post: Ty Wallace is a Golden Bear

Frustration.  On the cusp of a top-15 recruiting class, CU couldn't close the deal as top-100 recruit Ty Wallace committed to Cal today

I had been following his recruitment about as hard as I've followed any before.  He was widely considered one of the best point guards in the west, and as a big guard (6-4) he would've fit perfectly in Coach Boyle's system.  Word on the street was that while he may have initially favored CU, his parents wanted him to go to Berkeley.

Suffice to say that this news has put a damper on my opening week celebrations.  Time to cue up some sad-scotch...

Still, even without Ty Wallace, the 2012 recruiting class should be the best on paper in CU history.  Headlined by Colorado power forward Josh Scott and California swingman Xavier Johnson, it has the potential to help CU to the top of the conference.  Continue preparations for the start of basketball.
