Vermont Basketball Receives Interest PDF Print E-mail

With the departure of defensive stopper, Garvey Young, Coach Lonergan and company now have an available scholarship to offer.  The question is who will get the opportunity to join the surging Catamounts.

There has been a lot of interest from undecided high school prospects and transfer candidates.  Most recently, earlier this week 6'8" Hofstra Forward Halil Kanacevic chose St. Joseph's over Vermont and other top schools he considered.  Clearly his intention was to play at the highest level possible, but many prospects out there know that they can come to Vermont, work hard and play an immediate role.

Currently, Vermont has a gap in the guard spot and could use a solid defensive-minded two guard, but is clearly looking for the best prospect out there.

The opportunity is great to go to school in an amazing college town in Burlington and showcase basketball skills in front of arguably the most passionate fan base in the mid majors.  Top high school prospects know this reality that Vermont has a shot at winning the conference and at going to the NCAA Tournament every season.  

Most recently Marqus Blakely, a diamond in the rough coming out of high school, has become a rock-star in Vermont and nationwide (after winning the NCAA slam dunk contest) and is auditioning his skills at the NBA level as a result of his incredible career.

Who will be the next Marqus Blakely? 

Vermont Sports Network will keep you posted on new prospects, and be sure to check out the VTSN discussion board.
