WKU, WSU, WCU Add Recruits

The Hilltoppers, Catamounts and Raiders landed recruits over the weekend. Here's the latest on some recent additions.

Darrin Horn's first full recruiting class at Western Kentucky will be a good one. Horn received a letter of intent from Caverna High's Boris Siakam, a 6-7 forward from the state of Kentucky.

Our No. 1 goal with our first full recruiting class was to become more athletic, and Boris helps round out a group that has accomplished that," Horn said.

Joining Siakam will be 6-4 guard Courtney Lee, 6-3 scorer Ty Rogers, 6-7 power forward Mike Walker and Tennessee transfer Elgrace Wilborn who sat out last season.

Over in the Southern Conference, Steve Shurina found himself and Western Carolina a fine marksman in the form of Orlando's Trey Hopkins.

Hopkins, a standout for Team Florida, was getting interest from Louisiana-Lafayette. However, Western Carolina made an extremely strong push for him in the last month.

"He's a tremendous talent and an extremely good shooter," Nike Team Florida coach Tom Topping said. "He's a terrific student and is great academically. He'll fit in real well because he shoots and has a real good understanding of the game."

Over in the Horizon league, Wright State's Paul Biancardi made his move with a pair of prospects. Parysh Munroe, a 6-7, 230 pound forward out of Massanutten Military in Virginia, inked his letter of intent.

He'll be joined this fall by junior college transfer Jaron Taylor. The 6-2, 185 pound Taylor hails from Catonsville JC in Maryland. Taylor shot a sweet 45% from 3-point range this year.
