Mid-week, the Hawks got a signed National Letter of Intent from 6'8 Florida forward Papa Samba Ndao. This signing was a bit of a surprise, as Papa's recruitment was certainly not a straight-forward one. While he will join the team in January, the expectation is that he will redshirt and be a 2011 recruit for the Hawks. Papa is now joined officially by 6'3 North Carolina guard Chris Wilson, as Wilson's signed LOI has been received by the Hawks.
The official press release from Saint Joseph's is linked below. In the release, head coach Phil Martelli had this to say about Wilson:
"Chris and his family have embraced Saint Joseph's and the basketball program. He anxiously awaits the opportunity to enhance our program and our school. His game defines the true definition of a big guard."
Chris Wilson's Terry Sanford High School basketball team kicks off the 2010-2011 season on Tuesday night against New Hanover. Check back here throughout the season for Chris' high school results.
