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.

PREVIOUS EVALUATION:

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.
