More State Champs
Who were the State Champs elsewhere in the U.S.? Pick another state from the menu:
The state has had just one four-star prospect during this period, 6-foot-6 shooting guard Rakim Sanders, and the Eagles got him. Sanders could be the latest under-the-radar star recruited by Al Skinner. Providence would have a decent claim to this crown had the Friars signed two-star point guard Jeff Xavier the first time around. Xavier blew up as a star at Manhattan, averaging 16.6 points per game in 2005-06, before transferring to Providence this offseason.
Outside Player: Vermont
Vermont dropped in to take one of Sanders' current teammates at the St. Andrew's School in Barrington, R.I., two-star power forward Garrett Kissel.
Dragging In-State: ???
No one. Rhode Island (with Jimmy Baron) and Providence (Jeff Xavier) each have one homegrown player on their roster. In a state this size, that's a reasonable amount.
