Class of 2017 Elgin Larkin standout Christian Negron has committed to play his college basketball for head coach Porter Moser and Loyola University.
Negron, a 6’7 forward, ranks among the top frontcourt prospects in the state of Illinois for 2017. Negron is a bouncy rebounder with an improving skill level who should fit very well in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Negron will miss the 2016-17 high school season with a torn ACL.
Negron joins a 2017 Loyola recruiting class that already includes 6'8 Cameron Krutwig (Jacobs) giving the school a powerful frontcourt duo.
Negron competed on the Nike EYBL circuit with the Mac Irvin Fire.
Head coach Roy Williams and the University of North Carolina have added Sterling Manley to their 2017 recruiting haul.
Manley, a 6’10, 230-pound post, hails from Pickering, Ohio. He has been out of action with a broken leg since last February. Manley brings excellent size, good hands and big upside potential to the table.
Manley joins a class that also includes Jalek Felton, Brandon Huffman and Andrew Platek.
