Goldwire Visits, Makes His Pick

Leemire Goldwire, a point guard out of Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer, is headed north. One of the "sleepers" of the class will play in Conference USA.

Bobby Lutz has to be a happy camper. Why? The Charlotte 49ers stole one. Leemire Goldwire of Palm Beach Gardens (FL) Dwyer visited and committed to 49ers over the weekend.

"When it's all said and done … this kid just hasn't touched where he's going to be," assistant coach Billy Palagonia said of his guard. "He's such a worker. When he makes that next step it'll be pretty scary."

Goldwire had a good but not great summer and probably flew under the radar for most of the fall. Charlotte had a good evaluation on him, moved quickly and locked him down.

There will be minutes for the taking after the season in Charlotte. Goldwire is expected to get early minutes but knows they won't come easy. "First, when I come in I might be a backup and work my way up. I'll have to be a leader but I'll be young."

Young, talented and committed to Charlotte. That's just how Lutz would like to have it as we motor towards signing day in November.
