Upstate Guard Will Stay In New York

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on Kevin Agee, a guard from Niagara Falls High School in upstate New York ... Agee is taking an unusual route to play college basketball ...

Kevin Agee, a 6-foot-2 backcourt player from Niagara Falls High School in Niagara Falls, New York, has decided to walk on and play college basketball at St. Bonaventure.

A source close to Agee told us that Kelvin wanted to stay close to home and have a chance to make an impact too.

"He'll redshirt his freshman year in an effort to earn a scholarship," our source said.

Previously, we had reported that Quinnipiac head coach Tom Moore visited the upstate school. New Hampshire had shown a lot of interest in Agee's skill level too.

Here are some of the highlights of Kelvin's 2008-2009 basketball season:

*Competing against a team that knocked off Long Island Lutheran, Agee registered 28 points to lead Niagara Falls High School past Bishop Maginn, 78-58.

Maginn, a team that won five games without a loss, features the talent of guard Taran Buie, who recently committed to Penn State.

Agee also hauled down 12 rebounds and had five steals in a complete and very impressive effort.

Agee also has had previous interest from Niagara, Albany, Youngstown State, Canisius, Buffalo, Central Connecticut State, and Northeastern.


Kevin Agee has the ability to score from anywhere on the court as evidenced by the points he produces on a nightly basis.

He'll damage a zone defense. He's still open in his recruiting process.
