Loyola Marymount struck in the Big Apple again on Wednesday when Vernon Teel, a 6-foot-4, 189-pound freshman combo guard at Chipola Junior College in Marianna, Fla., and native of Flushing, N.Y. committed to Loyola Marymount.
Vernon joins former Seton Hall guard Larry Davis, a Christ the King alum who opted to transfer into the West Coast Conference program last month.
Teel confirmed the commitment on Wednesday.
A pure scorer, Teel averaged 8.7 points on a loaded Chipola team that took seventh place at the NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship.
Teel played at Flushing High School in Queens. He did a fifth year of high school at the Laurinburg Institute (N.C.).
