Elon Lands First Commitment

Mark Simons has his first commitment of the year. The Elon head coach went down to South Carolina and lured one of the state's top scorers to campus.

Gamble To Elon

Count Elon as one of the hundreds of Division I programs with a commitment from a member of the Class of 2002.

On Monday, Greenville (SC) Christ Church 6-8 power forward Rasmi Gamble picked Elon. He's one of the all-time leading scorers in the history of South Carolina basketball. As a junior, he averaged 33 points a game.

The commitment is Elon's first of the year. Gamble was scheduled to play in Charlie Weber Invitational in September, but injured his ankle and couldn't participate. He was receiving recruiting attention from Winthrop, High Point, UNC-Greensboro and Wofford.
