Lanier Gets Fourth Commitment

Rob Lanier and the Siena Saints have been beating the bushes pretty hard this recruiting season. For their efforts, the Saints are now the proud owners of four commitments from the Class of 2002.

Antoine Jordan Enlists

The Siena Saints own commitments from power forward Michael Haddix, small forward David Ryan and power forward Paul Williams. Now, they have a guard.

Philadelphia (PA) Celestial Prep combo guard Antoine Jordan committed to the Saints over the weekend. He also visited Central Connecticut.

"That was a big get for [Siena] because he's very good," Celestial head coach Darryl Schoefield said. "He can handle it and shoot it and that was definitely big for them."

Last year, Jordan played at Randallstown High in Maryland. According to Schoefield, he averaged over 20 points a game and was the Baltimore County player of the year.

The 6-5, 185 pound Jordan is going to play a combo guard role in Lanier's system. "They were on him early and he felt comfortable with Siena and liked the fact that Lanier was going to let him shoot and they would play him some at the point. He was real satisfied with that," Schoefield said.

This is Lanier's first season as a head coach and the Saints. This four-man class is diverse in terms of positions and there is a good mix of size and athleticism.
