Stinnett Commits on Visit

P'Allen Stinnett was close to pulling the trigger a couple weeks ago while on his visit to Iowa State. However, the Brewster Academy (N.H.) guard held off - at least for a couple weeks. Now he's committed - but not to the Cyclones.

Creighton is taking advantage of its success.

Bluejays coach Dana Altman got some good news on Friday morning when Brewster Academy (N.H.) athletic 6-foot-3 shooting guard P'Allen Stinnett committed while on a visit.

``They are good people and have done a great job," Stinnett said. "Check their record."

``My parents also connected with them and felt real comfortable with the staff at Creighton," Stinnett added.

Stinnett said that the recent success of the program and also the Missouri Valley Conference played a factor.

``Coming from Las Vegas, I had no idea where Omaha was," Stinnett said. "But I like it here and this conference has great competition night in and night out. These guys play at a high level."

Stinnett had taken visits to Iowa State and Idaho, but felt that the opportunity to step in and replace all-everything guard Nate Funk was one he welcomes.

``He's leaving and I'm excited to come in and try and fill his shoes," Stinnett said.
