USF signs highly touted hoops prospect

Things keep getting better for the USF mens' basketball team, which recently finished its best season in school history.

Coming on the heels of the announcement that Victor Rudd said he would be returning to school instead of making himself available for the NBA draft, USF signed 6-7 forward Zach LeDay from The Colony High School in Texas on Wednesday.

A versatile scorer, DeLay averaged 20.6 points and 9.4 rebounds a game and scored in double figures in 34 games in leading his team to a 30-6 record.

"Zach was an important signee for us," USF head coach Stan Heath said. "He fills a void in our front line after losing Ron Anderson and Gus Gilchrist. He is a guy who can score inside and out and is very versatile in his game."

LeDay makes USF's 2012 recruiting class, which was ranked 12th by HoopScoop, even stronger joining highly touted prospects Waverly Austin and Javontae Hawkins and junior college transfer Musa Abdul-Aleem.

  1. This kid's a steal of a get for '12 baller recruits. I watched him in Phoenix and the guy's a beast, can score in all kinds of ways and actually played defense during AAU. Lol!
