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.

Great move with amar, but if LaSalle is to reach the next level in my opinion,and this is no disrepect to any of the bigs because mr zach and wright are becoming super studs, however LaSalle needs some big east bulk in the paint to compliment this dynamic ducesomeee and also grab a rediculous shot blocking big who will tint anybodys shot who wants sun glasses in the paint! LaSalle, this is your chance to grab better recuits! Dont fumble!
