2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

Along with his 2019 SG brother Ryan Wade.  DU offered Ryan shortly after KD was hired.

I give up trying to figure out this scholarship situation. I just wish one of the local journalists would seek comment from coach.

Can't comment on a commitment. Only on a LOI.

Don't know about the scholarship situation, but I am super impressed with the quality of 2018 recruiting by KD and staff.  I believe this kid will turn out to be big time steal for DU, and the "distributor" that feeds the bigs he recruited.

No doubt about it. Extremely impressive. I believe wade has a younger brother who we also offered.

Re: 2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

My guess by the start of next season is that the 13 players with whom Keith Dambrot wants to go to war will be on basketball scholarships, and perhaps 1-2 more might be preferred walk-ons. Other players will want to go elsewhere to get PT.

No doubt, this staff is a recruiting machine.

Re: 2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

I agree with ED.  No use worrying about number of scholarships.  I did at first but I know this whole staff knows what it is doing.   The other good point by ED is that when you have 13 scholarships there will be players who envision more PT elsewhere.  Just let this all play out and enjoy.  Besides, he still has 6 or 8 other offers out there!

Re: 2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

This article gives some insight into the quality player and kid we are getting.  He is the son of a coach and brings a very high basketball IQ to his game.

Re: 2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

I am really in awe of what KD and staff have accomplished here and we haven't even played a game. This is beyond anything that I would have anticipated at this stage of the game. Looking forward to much success moving forward. Can't wait for my season tickets to arrive. GO DUKES!!

Re: 2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

Just love the enthusiasm KD & his staff have generated. It's been a long time coming! And just think, they haven't played a minute of BB at DU yet. Hope it continues & grows with these great kids that have been giving verbals for 2018.

Re: 2018 PG Brandon Wade is visiting DU today

Here's another article from Michigan post-commitment:

You have to be impressed with Coach Dambrot's recruiting success in his first 6 months on the Bluff.
