St. Peter's snagged its fifth commitment of the early signing period when 6-foot-7, 205 pound power forward T.J. Stukes from Bronx Regional High School pledged to Bob Leckie's program this week, according to sources close to the recruiting process.
Stukes, a fifth-year senior at Bronx Regional who had previously attended Mount Vernon High School, is an explosive run/jump athlete who turned heads in AAU play with his emphatic dunks. His game needs more polish but his athleticism is likely his biggest asset at this point.
Stukes played with Kevin Hamilton's New York City Jaguars on the AAU circuit this summer.
Stukes joins a class that includes 6-foot-5, 230 pound power forward Quentin Martin and 5-foot-10, 170 pound point guard Kevin Spann from St. Thomas More in Oakdale, Connecticut, 6-foot-1, 230 pound swingman Brandon Brock from Newburgh, New York, and 6-foot-5, 195 pound guard/forward Michael Gore from St. Andrew's School in Barrington, Rhode Island.
