Gardner to Providence

Providence restarted its 2011 recruiting class on Thursday with point guard Kiwi Gardner.

Providence is back on the board in 2011, as 5-foot-9, 150-pound Phoenix Westwind Prep point guard Kiwi Gardner committed to the Friars, Westwind coach Gary Trousdale told

Originally from Manteca (Calif.), Gardner headed to Westwind with the plan of reclassifying to 2012, but recently qualified for 2011 and will sign with Providence as part of that class.

Gardner was part of the talented Drew Gooden Soldiers AAU squad that blew threw the Las Vegas Fab 48 this summer.
