Notebook: Non-BCS schools pick up uncommitted forwards
While Amile Jefferson got most of the attention this week for his decision, there were some under-the-radar prospects that also made college choices.
Two of the nation's top uncommitted forwards made decisions on Monday.
Canada native Dyshawn Pierre, an athletic 6-foot-6 product of Anderson (ON), went with Dayton.
“He comes from a great family, a winning high school program and has a wealth of experience competing for his national team in Canada," Flyers' coach Archie Miller said in a statement.
Moreover, former Providence commit Markus Crider chose Georgia State. Crider is a physical prospect who did a prep year at Bridgton Academy (Maine) this past season.
"I am very excited to be adding a player of Markus' talent to our team," Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter said in a release. "He will be a great addition to our wings. I am also excited that he is from my hometown of Dayton which has produced many talented basketball players over the years."
Brzoja commits to Northwestern -- maybe
Mislav Brzoja, a native of Crotia who saw his recruitment heat up over the past month, made a decision on Monday night.
Brzoja committed to Northwestern, but has yet to be admitted to the school. If he is not accepted into the school, he said he will commit to Dayton.
"I think that [Northwestern] would be a good fit for me," Brzoja told Chris Emma of Scout's Northwestern site. "Their style of play is good for me. I want to play in the Big Ten."
Kentucky and other schools joined the 6-foot-5 guard's recruitment late in the process.
