And the class just keeps getting better UB gets a letter from Skeete

via static.deseretnews.com

The Buzz among Buffalo fans yesterday was not only due to the teams victory over Cornell. Many in attendance were talking about Jarryn Skeete, a point guard from Brompton, Ontario, who signed a National Letter of Intent yesterday.

This is now three solid names which have come out over the past several months.

First there was the transfer of Will Regan from Virginia. UB offered Regan a scholarship as an eighth grader and he made an unofficial visit to UB before selecting Virginia. After one year at Virginia he started shopping for a new school. Regan signed up with Buffalo before having the chance to visit some other local schools like Niagara, a visit he just canceled.

The second big name was Stan Weir who had been teammates with Regan. Wier's shooting was a major part Nichols' run to the Federation title.

Now there is Skeete

Skeete is ranked the 39th best point guard in the class of 2012 according to ESPN. He played his first three seasons at Cardinal Leger outside Toronto before playing his senior season at Wasatch Academy in Utah. He averaged 18 points, four rebounds and 5.5 assists at Wasatch en route to earning 1A All-State Most Valuable Player honors.

"He has a great feel for the game and is a crafty playmaker. He has a good understanding of what it takes to run a team." -- Reggie Witherspoon

This season, he is playing at Bridgton Academy in Maine for head coach Whit Lesure. Bridgton is generally considered one of the premiere prep schools in the nation for basketball.

On the AAU circuit he ran with a loaded CIA Bounce roster that featured many of the top prospects in Canada including Anthony Bennett, Negus Webster-Chan, Dyshawn Pierre, Stefan Jankovic, and more.
