With CJ Aiken, Daryus Quarles, and Langston Galloway set to sign with the Hawks in a little less than a month, a new name has arrived. The Hawks have long been linked with Saint Peter's Prep forward Ronald Roberts from the class of 2010. A new name in that class has come to our attention at Hawk Hill Hardwood courtesy of Matt Bracken at the Baltimore Sun. In an article from October 7th, Bracken discusses the recruitment of Baltimore shooting guard Dante Holmes.
In his article (which is linked below for you to check out) Bracken interviews Saint Frances assistant coach Nick Myles about his senior guard. Myles mentions that Providence is coming in to see Holmes and that SJU, Fordham, Temple, and Quinnipiac have also been in lately to see him.
Holmes is an athletic 2 guard who checks in right around 6'3. ESPN has evaluated him over the past couple of years and describes him as an athletic and hard-working wing guard. ESPN also cites his ability to guard the 1, 2, and 3 defensively.
This is a new name to us at HHH and probably to most Hawk fans. The level of interest either way is unknown, but it is a name to put in the back of your head for the time being.
