St. John’s has landed the second commit for 2020, guard Vince Cole from USC-Salkehatchie.
The 6’6” JUCO wing will have two years of eligibility once he arrives in Queens. For Mike Anderson’s Red Storm, should be a good, high usage scoring piece for next year. He will enter St. John’s with guard Posh Alexander, and both will try to meet the needs of the high-energy hoops style Anderson will put on the floor.
From the NY Post:
“It was a really easy decision,” the 6-foot-6 Cole, who will have two years of eligibility, said in a phone interview. “I’ve known [assistant] Coach [TJ] Cleveland and Coach Anderson for a really long time. New York is a great place. Coach Anderson loves JUCO guys and gets them to where I want to go.”
Cole visited this weekend for Dribble for the Cure, which continues to raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation — and give dribblers a chance to interact with the basketball team.
Meanwhile, Ohio State landed Zed Key, a hard working power forward from Long Island.
With Key gone, St. John’s, which also has a commitment from point guard Posh Alexander, will likely be looking to bigs for the next commit. The Red Storm are currently recruiting local bigs Max Amadusun, Josh Gray and Cliff Omoruyi.
