We spoke with Keion Kindred, 6-2 PG Compton (Calif.) Dominguez, yesterday and he informed us that he's committed to UTEP. Keion had wanted us to hold the announcement until Tuesday, but the news is out now with other websites reporting the commitment.
Keion told us that his relationship with the UTEP staff and players was a primary factor in his decision. "The UTEP staff did an incredible job of recruiting me," Keion said. "I can tell already that Coach Rabedeaux is going to be a great coach for me."
Keion said that Minnesota was the other finalist in his recruitment.
