BOULDER University of Colorado men’s basketball head coach Jeff Bzdelik announced Wednesday that Shannon Sharpe from Corona, Calif. has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his education and play basketball at CU beginning in the fall of 2009.

Sharpe, a 6’0”, 190-pound point guard averaged 17.9 points per game at Centennial High School during the 2007-08 season. He also averaged 7.9 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 3.2 steals per game for the Huskies.

Sharpe helped Centennial to a 27-5 record during his senior season and tallied four top-five Mountain View League finishes in points (2nd), rebounds (4th), assists (1st) and steals (1st).

He was named to the Division 2 all-California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) and all-Riverside County first-teams his senior year.

“Our goal during the late signing period was to add a guard who is physical and adds athleticism to our team.  Shannon Sharpe fills this need,” Bzdelik said.

Sharpe is the fourth incoming freshman joining the 2009-10 Buffaloes roster.

Last November, CU signed Alec Burks (Guard, 6’5”, 180, Grandview, Mo./Grandview High School);  Shane Harris-Tunks (Center/Forward, 6’11”, 240, Sydney, Australia/Australian Institute of Sport); and Keegan Hornbuckle (Forward, 6’6”, 190, Fr., Los Angeles, Calif./Campbell Hall High School).

The freshmen quartet joins a CU 2009-10 roster comprised of 12 scholarships consisting of one senior (Dwight Thorne II); three juniors (Casey Crawford, Levi Knutson, Cory Higgins); and four sophomores (Austin Dufault, Trey Eckloff, Nate Tomlinson, Toby Veal). Juniors Trent Beckley and Javon Coney, round out the roster as non-scholarship student-athletes next season.

With the departure of freshman guard Ryan Kelley, CU has one scholarship available for the late signing period that expires May 20.
