If it is true he had offers from Tulsa and W. Kentucky (2 programs with great basketball tradition), among others, this is a good get from an area where we don’t traditionally sign recruits (although I think Gourley was from Arkansas, and we did dip into fertile Texas to sign Mackey). We are really getting guys from all over the place.
Only concern with this guy would be his size, he is pretty tiny at 5’10” and 150 lbs. Hope he continues to grow and can add strength to his body. Everything on him looks pretty positive.
Always helps to have a lot of guys who can handle the ball late in games, and hopefully shoot free throws in one and one and double bonus.
I guess he is in competition with MS and CS for point guard minutes when he arrives.
