The UB men's basketball program received a verbal from 6-6, 230-pound power forward Javon McCrea from Newark High School in Newark, N.Y.
Sounds like UB got a steal. McCrea is a three-star recruit by Rivals.com who was offered scholarships by Georgetown and UMass. His You Tube clip indicates he's a prototypical Mid-American Conference power forward. He averaged 20 points and 15 rebounds as a junior and is regarded as the top player in Section V.
