Three To Ink With Fancher
Hardy, a 6-8 power forward from Sheridan (WY) Junior College, is a North Carolina native who'll be making a return to his roots. He's 6-8.
Scott was a standout with the Central Florida Force at the 2002 AAU National Championship. This is where Appalachian State might have stolen one. Scott has range and athleticism and we thought he was a terrific mid-major player coming out of the summer. Credit assistant Matt McMahon for staying on top of this one.
The third commitment is a player quite familiar with the Appalachian State program. Darryl Thompson of Leesville Road in Raleigh is coach by Darryl Robinson, a former Appy State standout.
"Darryl, in my eyes, has always been a coach's dream," Robinson said. "He plays so hard at both ends of the floor and he has waited patiently for this. I think once the confidence grew and he saw that he could play with and even outplay some people with the national reputations it was nice to see.
"ASU is a wonderful school and Coach Fancher worked really hard in getting Darryl."
