"Corey brings plenty of talent and versatility to the hardwood and he has a tremendous skill set that will perfectly fit into what we want to do. It is exciting to finally get a player from one of the top high school programs in the state, who has been coached by one of the best coaches in Colorado, Joe Ortiz.
