Spiders land another from Texas

The Richmond Spiders continue to do work in Texas on the recruiting trail with the latest commitment coming from Dallas.

The Richmond Spiders landed one prospect from the Houston area a week ago, and now they have gone back to the Lone Star State this time to the city of Dallas to land Tim Singleton. Singleton, who stars at Dallas (Tex.) Hillcrest, is expected to bring some scoring punch to the Spiders lineup.

At 6-foot-2, Singleton has the ability to really put the ball in the basket, and that is what the Spiders saw all summer long with the Dallas Seawolves, and now the two have found a match.

"The players, I loved them," said Singleton of Richmond. "It made me feel like a family. The campus was also great. I felt like it was a home to me."

One thing that stood out to Singleton is the style of play that the Spiders employ.

"We run that whole kind of zone and man thing at my high school, and I just like everything about the system," said Singleton. "They are looking for me to go out there and score the ball, and I think that is what I do well."

Along with taking a visit to Richmond, Singleton also made an official visit to Tulsa, but at the end of the day Richmond was just the right spot for him.

"Tulsa, North Texas, and Murray State were after me, but ultimately I wanted to be at Richmond. It is just where I wanted to be," said Singleton.
