Recruiting News: Rivals Class Of 2016 Top 150 Updated

#pcbb Weekly Recruiting Update 9/5/14

Labor Day weekend figured to be quiet with students moving into their dorms on the PC campus but some unexpected news hit that Friday with the apparent addition of German guard Tyree Chambers to the roster for the 2014-15 season.

Chambers visited Providence back in May and an offer was extended about 3 weeks ago. The connection appears to have been fostered by Associate Head Coach Andre LaFleur which is similar to the Kyron Cartwright recruitment. Chambers is at Providence and enrolled in classes but has not yet been given the go ahead by the NCAA Clearinghouse though he told Jeff Ferrucci of ScoutFriars.com “the clearance shouldn’t be a problem because I never signed a contract. I was just a youth player traveling with the team.” There is a highlight video (below) that shows highlights of Chambers playing in the NBBL which he describes as “the highest level for basketball under the age of 19.”
