Its Official: May Heading to Moscow!

This afternoon big Power Forward <b>Jack May</b> signed a National Letter of Intent to join Idaho head coach <b>Leonard Perry</b> in the rebuilding effort taking place in Moscow. At 6-8, Jack brings much needed size to what has recently been an undersized front court for the Vandals. He's the second 6-8 power forward we've signed this recruiting season (joining high school recruit David Radlovic), and could see significant playing time immediately next season.

Last season the Vandals had to fight and scrap for every loose ball they could get. Although the effort of last year's team was commendable, a boost in overall team size should pay immediate dividends on the boards. In addition to superb height, power forward Jack May brings a year's worth of Division I basketball experience on the east coast (at Duquesne University of the Atlantic 10 Conference), and a year's worth of experience on a powerful College of Southern Idaho team, in which he was among the team's leaders in rebounding.

Jack joins recently announced Idaho Vandal recruits Delvin Spruel, a 6-2 guard from Lee College in Texas, and David Radlovic, a 6-8 freshman out of A.B. Lucas High School in Canada. May fits the mold of the type of player Coach Perry is bringing into the Vandal fold, a mold which includes a drive to pursue rebounds as aggressively as scoring buckets. This is definitely a class we look forward to watching develop next year and in the years to come.

We've been keeping our eye on Jack for several weeks, and are definitely excited with his signing. From all of us at, welcome to the Palouse Jack!
