USF Men's Basketball Receives Great News

Coach Stan Heath received great news Tuesday afternoon regarding two of his future players for his 2013-2014 basketball team. While maybe battling some anxiety with regards to the situation he was facing, you can bet Coach Heath cracked a smile and can relax now after hearing the good news.

Tampa, FL--Stan Heath and the South Florida Bulls received great news late Tuesday afternoon regarding two of the six newcomers for South Florida's upcoming 2013-2014 squad.

Junior-College transfer Corey Allen (Mt. San Antonio-CC) out of Walnut, CA and true Freshman John Egbunu out of Fort Walton Beach, FL have both been cleared by the NCAA to play this upcoming season.

The 7'0, 250 lb. Egbunu is a likely starter from Day one for the Bulls. He'll be teaming with fellow Freshman Chris Perry (6'9,245lbs) out of Bartow, FL and Sophomore Zach LeDay (6'7,223lbs) to round out Stan Heath's front court, which will be a major upgrade in 2013.

Egbunu is nowhere near a finished product offensively or defensively, but possesses a ton of potential for Coach Heath. He runs the floor extremely well for a kid his size and has a great frame that could easily hold another twenty pounds without effecting his athleticism. Egbunu will provide the Bulls with a true rim protector in 2013.

The 6'1 Allen on the other hand, provides the Bulls with a scoring point guard who can get points in a hurry, but will also make his future teammates better with his passing ability. The quick and slippery JUCO transfer averaged 21.1 ppg and 4.2 apg while shooting 62 percent from the field. Allen lead Mt. San Antonio College (Calif.) to the 2012-13 California JUCO State Championship and was named the Southern California JUCO Player of the Year.
