University of Delaware Menís Basketball Program Signs Five High School Standouts To National Letters of Intent
NEWARK, Del. -- University of Delaware men’s basketball head coach Monté Ross has announced that five high school standouts have signed National Letters of Intent with UD and will begin playing for the Blue Hens during the 2014-15 season.
The class includes Eric Carter, a 6-9 forward from Jackson Memorial High School in Jackson, N.J.; Chivarsky Corbett, a 6-6 wing player from Tampa Catholic High School in Tampa, Fla.; Kory Holden, a 6-2 point guard from J.M. Bennett High School in Salisbury, Md.; Skye Johnson, a 6-8 forward from Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, Va.; and Anthony “Champ” Mosely, a 6-0 combo guard from Sanford School in Wilmington, Del.
Carter was a second team All-Shore selection as a junior at Jackson Memorial, when he led the Jaguars to a 22-6 record while averaging 14.8 points and 10.0 rebounds per game.
Corbett was a second team all-county pick a year ago, when he averaged 22 points and 10 rebounds per game while leading Tampa Catholic to a 19-9 record and a spot in the Class 4A regional semifinals. He averaged 18.5 points and 10 rebounds as a sophomore, and last year scored 50 points during a game against Sarasota Cardinal.
Holden was named the Bayside Player of the Year and first team All-Bayside last season, when he led the Clippers to an 18-3 record. He eclipsed the 1,000-point mark during his junior year, when he averaged 25 points per game.
Johnson, a Dumfries, Va. native, was ranked the 14th best player in Virginia according to Phenom Hoop Report after leading V.E.S. to a 21-4 record during his junior year. He averaged 12 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks a year ago for V.E.S.
Mosely helped lead Sanford to state titles during his first two seasons, and to a berth in the state championship game as a junior. He averaged 12.4 points and 5.2 assists per game a year ago, and was an honorable mention All-Delaware selection by USA Today.
“We are very excited about the class that we have signed,” said Ross. “We felt this was a very important class to help us sustain the turnaround of Delaware basketball. The talent level of these five young men, combined with their academic and character levels, are what our program embodies in terms of the spirit of the University.”
