Cougars Land Guard

The College of Charleston landed itself a point guard. A Baltimore native will one day take over the reigns for Tom Herrion.

Draper Picks Cougars

Tom Herrion, the first-year head coach at the College of Charleston, has himself a point guard.

"I liked it when I went down there," said Dontaye Draper. "If I go there I'll do good because they have a lot of scorers. They have good wing players and big men."

Draper, a 6-0 point guard from Pawling (NY) Trinity-Pawling, averaged 17 points and 8 assists a game last season for Baltimore (MD) Walbrook. He's a fifth-year student at Trinity-Pawling. He'll play alongside Pittsburgh commitment Dante Milligan.

Draper said that he had offers from Central Connecticut State, Robert Morris, Siena and Rider. "I didn't really talk to anyone once I went to Charleston," Draper said.

The guard was enamored with Herrion and the program. "He's a nice guy. He's a good coach. They play the up-tempo style like my AAU team." Draper said.
