Both myself and Coach Magrino had the opportunity to see X play live during the year and absolutely love what he can do on the floor. X is a very, very athletic wing that plays hard on both ends of the floor. With his work ethic, he should continue to improve greatly over his career at Sheridan, and we think he will be a big part of our 2012 recruiting class! He is exactly the type of young man that we want representing our program as we move forward.”
