New recruit signings

Postby Austin Ace » Sat Apr 14, 2018 5:01 pm

Per Pat Hickey:

UE lands a commitment from 6-5 guard Rosel Hurley (@Rozzel_dozzl35). Cleveland native. Redshirt, then season-ending injury in two years at Kent State. Averaged 14 points last year at New Mexico Military Institute.

Hurley was teammates with Celtics guard Terry Rozier at Shaker Heights High School nearby Cleveland. He also played at IMG Academy, helping the Ascenders to runner-up finish at National Prep Championship in '15.

Hurley can certainly drive the ball!

I guess the days of guards standing around the 3-point line dribbling and watching screeners are gone.

Noah and Evan should be smiling from ear to ear. A guy like Hurley will be their best friend drawing defenders and getting them open shots. I can't wait to see who Walter gets next. Excited!!

That gives us 8 players and that's 1/2 player more than Marty ever used so you could say that we have a full roster.

According to Pat, DeAndre held offers from:
Houston, Oklahoma State, SMU, Baylor, WKU.

That's an awesome list. Maybe he slid under the radar after he attended prep school.

Here's his 247 profile, they listed him in the 180s in their rankings out of HS. He may be one of the best recruits we've had in years.

Athletic 6'3 guard from Texas, Jawaun Newton, is on a visit currently. Another plus athlete. Google him and check out his highlights!
