Catching Up On Some Commitments

It's been real busy around lately but we wanted to catch you up on a few things. Recently, Michigan State landed another commitment and so did Villanova.

MSU, ‘Nova Add Players

Marquise Gray, a power forward from Flint (MI) Beecher, committed to Michigan State in July. Not familiar with Gray? Well, you will be. He's a rising junior power forward and he's a very good player.

At the June Nike Hoop Jamboree, Gray was clearly one of the 10 best prospects at the event. He was invited to the big Nike Camp but was not in attendance. Regardless, this is a young man who cleans the glass. He uses his athleticism for impressive dunks and is starting to make perimeter shots to medium-range.

Gray joins Drew Nietzel as the Spartans second commitment from the Class of 2004.

Michael Nardi, a point guard out of Elizabeth (NJ) St. Patrick High committed to Villanova. Nardi was injured for most of his junior year. He recently played at the Nike All-American Camp and also at the AAU Nationals with the Newark Rams.

Previously, he had offers from Rutgers, Villanova and Seton Hall. Pittsburgh showed interest and so did NC State but the Wolfpack evaluated him this summer and did not offer.
