A late addition to their class might pay off for the Buffs.

The Colorado Buffaloes were one of the tallest teams in the country last season, with an average height of 78 inches. There was some worry that, with Josh Scott's departure, the Buffs would miss some of that size.

They've extinguished those worries over the past few weeks, signing 7-footer Dallas Walton in February, and 6'10" forward Lucas Siewert on Tuesday.

Siewert initially committed to Arizona State in January of 2015, but reopened his recruitment after Herb Sendek was fired.

Siewert originally comes from Brazil, but played all four of his seasons of high school basketball in the United States.

As you can see in the video below, Siewert is very polished on the offensive side of the ball.

Colorado has one scholarship remaining for 2016.
