Colorado gets a commitment from Class of 2016 guard

1 Comment

Colorado picked up a commitment in the Class of 2016 on Monday afternoon as Arizona native and 6-foot-4 guard Cameron Satterwhite pledged to the Buffaloes and head coach Tad Boyle.

Satterwhite announced his decision on Twitter:

A native of Gilbert, Arizona, Satterwhite attends Gilbert Christian and is averaging 18 points, five rebounds and three assists this season, according to Rivals.

Satterwhite is the second commitment for the Buffaloes in the 2016 class as he joins Michigan native Deleon Brown.

Not much is known about Satterwhite nationally. He hasn’t accumulated a star ranking yet on Rivals and Colorado was his only high-major scholarship offer.

Here’s a scouting report of Satterwhite’s game from Anthony Ray of Arizona Preps:

Satterwhite is very long and athletic and has a very good feel for the game.  The game comes very natural to him as a player, and he is also a natural athlete that thrives in the open floor and flys through the air with grace.  He is able to make plays that most players cannot, as a result of his athleticism and ability to play above the rim.  He is an excellent finisher above the rim and is capable of finish plays over bigger defenders.  An excellent slasher and finisher, Satterwhite plays much bigger than his size suggests – utilizing his length and wingspan to make plays, with or without the basketball.  This young man has the potential to become an excellent defender, as he has excellent lateral quickness and on-the-court anticipation – allowing him to play passing lanes and get in the open floor for steals and transition baskets.  He is capable of  becoming a lock-down defender, but still needs to focus on locking up opposing ballhandlers off the dribble to reach his maximum potential as a player.  A rising prospect in Arizona’s 2016 class.

One thing we do know for sure, Satterwhite has a ridiculous wingspan for his size. One report listed his wingspan around 7-foot-5 and here’s the high school junior stretching his wingspan against former NBA All-Star Chris Webber:
