Another Two Ohio Seniors Make Their Calls

17 Oct

As Ohio targets continue to make Division I commitments at a staggering rate two high profile prospects followed suit on Monday. Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary’s combo forward Lorenzo Cugini gave his pledge to High Point of the Southland Conference while Dublin Coffman combo guard Kyle Molock decided on St. Joe’s of the Atlantic 10.

Cugini, widely considered Ohio’s most versatile inside-outside threat, should be effective in a High Point program that is known for putting up big scoring numbers. After winning the Division II Ohio State Championship as junior and being one of the top players on his EYBL participating King James Shooting Stars AAU team Cugini had many college suitors from the Horizon league, MAC, and the Southern Conference before deciding on High Point. A big time shooter with a 6’6 frame and solid mobility Cugini is not afraid to step inside and mix it up physically.

Molock, who has overcome a slew of injuries and a de-commitment from Purdue (where he committed after his freshman year, made the call to St. Joe’s, of Philadelphia, the day after returning from his official visit. A scoring combo guard who has really improved his jumpshot Molock has the complete package of athleticism, strength, brains, vision, handling, shiftiness, and finishing abilities. A high major talent that has been hampered by injuries he could become a high level scoring point guard in the A-10, something that the Hawks are very much used to.

As mentioned earlier Ohio prospects are picking Division I schools at almost a record rate the class of 2012 is becoming known as one of the nation’s deepest. Ohio has already had 25 players verbally commit for next season, including Monday’s two commitments, and approx 10-15 more could be coming before it is all said and done.
