Chippewas Insider has learned that two junior college basketball players are taking official visits to Central Michigan University this weekend.
The two JUCO players are small forward Jacolby Hardiman (6-4, 205) of the University of Arkansas Fort Smith and shooting guard Antonio Weary (6-3, 215) of Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College.
This season, Hardiman averaged nine points, five rebounds and 2.3 assists in helping lead UA Fort Smith to a 28-4 record and a No. 12 ranking in the National Junior College Athletic Association poll.
Hardiman, who prepped at Milwaukee (Wisc.) Bradley Tech High School, formerly Milwaukee Trade & Tech, reports scholarship offers from Northern Iowa, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Loyola and Eastern Illinois, in addition to the Chippewas. He is a sophomore with two years of eligibility remaining.
Weary averaged 10.5 points and nearly five rebounds per game this season to help lead Hutchinson CC to a 22-9 record. He shot 52 percent from the field and was second on the team with 45 steals this season.
Weary, who prepped at Lynwood (Calif.) High School, is a redshirt freshman and has three years of college eligibility remaining.
In addition to CMU, Weary reports offers from Montana, Eastern Washington, Montana State, Portland State and South Carolina State.
CMU is recruiting Hardiman and Weary for its 2008 recruiting class. The Chippewas already signed three Michigan high school players for their 2008 class in November. Those three are 6-foot-9 center Zach Saylor of Lansing Waverly High School, 6-6 power forward Lawrence Bridges of Detroit Henry Ford and 5-11 point guard Adrian Hunter of Grand Blanc.
