Blue Demons Add 2004 Point Man
DePaul got an early start on the Class of 2004, especially considering the Blue Demons most recent commitment came from a junior college freshman.
Aking Elting, a 5-10 point guard, committed to Dave Leitao's bunch this week. Elting is a native of Elizabethtown, N.C. He made the switch to Southern Idaho where he joined his brother Sakrid Dent, a sophomore at CSI.
As a junior, he and his brother teamed to win a state championship in North Carolina. He was a 3-time all-conference player at Elizabethtown. The freshman is averaging 16 minutes a game at CSI this year and he's used his time wisely. He's averaging 5 points and 3.8 assists in that time. A few juco observers feel like he'll be among the top players at his position next year.
The commitment is DePaul's first among members of the Class of 2004.
