Neff will be a senior this fall. His brother, Thomas, was a member of DU's 2015 signing class.

Neff, a 6-foot guard, averaged 11.9 points per game last season, along with 3.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds. Known as a shooter, he hit 44.4 percent of 3-point shots he took last season.
The Wildcats went 19-6 last season and reached the second round of the Class 5A tournament.
Neff is the fifth member of the talented 2016 boys basketball class in the state to make his college choice.
Denver has a long history of recruiting top in-state products. The Pioneers will have six Colorado kids on their roster in 2015-16, including Thomas Neff and Chaparral product Jake Holtzmann, also a 2015 signee.
Highlands Ranch grad Marcus Byrd and Colorado Spring Christian product Nate Engesser will both be seniors, Lincoln's Josiah Dunn will be a junior, and Mountain Vista's Jake Pemberton will be a sophomore.
