Over the past several weeks, the University of Denver men’s basketball team continued to fill their open roster spots for the 2021-2022 season. The four new additions include small forwards from Finland and Italy, a JUCO point guard and a local walk-on from Rangeview High School in the Denver metro.
The transformed roster has one returning starter (Taelyr Gatlin), three returning non-starters from last season, four transfers, four returning walk-on’s, three scholarship freshmen and one walk-on freshman. According to Verbal Commits, Denver still has three open scholarships available for the 2021 season.
Jeff Wulbrun and his staff will need to use every moment they have in practice to integrate all the new student-athletes if they want to fulfill their stated goal of becoming the most improved team in the country.
Here is a bit of detail about each of the newcomers:

A local product, Cade Palmer, from Rangeview is going to be a walk-on. He is a shooting guard who specializes in 3-point shots. He is the first local player to join Jeff Wulbrun’s squad.
