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 to attend UD and play for the Blue Hens beginning next season.
Kyle Anderson, Marvin King-Davis, Khalid Lewis-El, Larry Savage and Jarvis Threatt each signed this month during the early signing period and comprise the Blue Hens’ class of 2015.
Anderson, a 6-2 shooting guard, averaged 20.8 points per game last season at Newark Community (Ill.) High School and entered his senior season ranked third on the school’s career list with 1,615 points.
King-Davis, a 6-7 forward, was an All-District and All-Region selection as a junior in 2009-10. He averaged 13.6 points and 8.5 rebounds per game a year ago at Meadowbrook High School in Richmond, Va.
Lewis-El, a 6-3 guard, led Trenton Catholic to a 28-3 record and the New Jersey Tournament of Champions title last season. He posted 15 points and five rebounds during a 57-56 triple overtime win over nationally-ranked St. Anthony’s in the New Jersey Non-Public B championship.
Savage, a 6-5 small foward, was an All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference honoree a year ago for Bishop O’Connell (Va.) High School. He averaged 12 points and six rebounds per game for the Knights in 2009-10.
Threatt, a 6-1 guard, was also an All-District and All-Region honoree last season at Highland Springs High School in Richmond. He averaged 19.6 points, 2.6 assists and 3.0 steals during his junior year.
“I’m very proud of the recruiting class we have,” said Ross. “We are losing quality students and people in our five seniors, and this will be a great class to replace them. Not only are they good basketball players, they are outstanding students and individuals who will represent the University very well.”Back To Men's Basketball Home Men's Basketball Story Archive
