Commitment Catchup

The last few days have been kind to a number of programs. Guys like Omari Israel and Kyle Visser headline a list of players who committed within the last few days.

Commitment Catchup

According to Jeff Shelman of the Star Tribune, Minnesota picked up a commitment this weekend. Kerry Woolridge visited and promptly committed to the Gophers last weekend.

The 6-7, 195 pound small forward picked the Gophers after receiving heavy interest from Oregon State, San Diego State, Baylor and Nevada. "I really liked the coaching staff and the players, and it seemed like it would be a good opportunity for me," Woolridge told the Star Tribune.

Notre Dame was again busy last weekend. After his official visit, forward Omari Israel committed to the Irish.

Israel hails from the same area of the country where Mike Brey went to school, coached and began his bench career. He's listed among our Top 100 prospects entering the season.

Kyle Visser, a young man who probably will receive heavy consideration for our final Top 100 list, committed during a visit last weekend.

Visser tripped to Wake Forest and wasted little time in pulling the trigger for Skip Prosser's program. The big man is a developing player on the national scene. He has great size and nice touch around the basket. In short, he's got loads of potential and we wouldn't be surprised to see him continue to grow as a player.

Late last week, Rutgers landed itself a new shooter. Quincy Douby committed to play for Coach Gary Waters.

Douby owns a reputation as a big time shooter. He hails from New York but is spending a year in Connecticut at a prep school.
