La Salle Gets Commitment From 2013 Point Guard Amar Stukes
La Salle has landed 2013 priority point guard recruit Amar Stukes. The news was broken by various recruiting websites this past Wednesday. The 6'2", 165 pound Stukes, from La Salle College High School of the Philadelphia Catholic League, picked the Explorers over offers from Drexel, George Mason, Fairfield, and Binghamton. The La Salle coaching staff targeted Amar early on, offering him a scholarship after the conclusion of his sophomore year, and their persistence has paid off. Stukes will be groomed to be the replacement for current La Salle point guard Tyreek Duren after he graduates in 2014. Even with the graduation of Duren and current La Salle juniors Sam Mills, Tyrone Garland, and Taylor Dunn in 2014, having an experienced Stukes on the roster will bolster an already strong 2014-15 backcourt along with D.J. Peterson and recent Delaware transfer Khalid Lewis.
