The Falcons announced they have signed two players for the coming season. The first was one I wrote about a couple days ago--Torian Oglesby, who will play in the post and is a transfer from Mott Community College.
Here's some more info on him....
Under the tutelage of Coach Steve Schmidt, Oglesby lead Mott CC to a 26-4 record overall, including a record of 15-1 in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association. The Bears defeated Glen Oaks CC 77-73 for the MCCAA Tournament Championship and he was named to the Eastern Conference All-Defensive Team and third team all-Eastern conference. He played in all 30 games for Mott, averaging 10.0 points and a team-best 8.4 rebounds, while shooting 63.9 percent from the field. Oglesby also blocked 34 shots and added 41 steals.The other one is new...welcome Anthony Henderson of Toledo Start to the Falcons for this Fall. He is a 6'2" guard who averaged a sick 27 points a game last year. He was all-state, Blade POY, City League POY and District co-POY.
Here's what Coach Orr had to say about him....
He has the ability to score in a lot of different ways. But he is unselfish and can create plays with the ball for himself or for his teammates. One thing we really like about him is his playmaking ability in late shot clock situations. He’s a good finisher and can play both guard spots. He’s young and he has huge upside still.”
They join Craig Sealey and Cameron Black II from the early signing period to make up the Falcons four-man recruiting class.
It would not surprise me to see Oglesby get starts in the post. McElroy doesn't look like a post player to me and Black may be raw and not used to playing against guys his size.
Henderson joins a guard position where there is lots of depth...Jaku, Brown, Crawford, Eggers, etc.
I do like the look of these guys. Next year's team may struggle due to a lack of seasoned big men, but I think there is a good chance we could be really good to open Stroh the year after that.
