More 2011 Prospects Come off the Board this Past Weekend

Posted by CoHoops Paul Seaver

Texas Tech head coach Pat Knight picked up a verbal commitment over the weekend from Humble, Texas native Hershey Robinson. Robinson, a 6-foot-7 power forward is from just outside of Houston and becomes the second to verbally join Knight's class of 2011.

5-foot-9 Andre Smith has committed to Winthrop. The Florida point guard is known for his smarts on the court and play making decisions and should be a great addition in the back court for Winthrop. He is considered the 102nd best point guard prospect in the nation, according to ESPNU.

Fred Landers will be heading to North Florida. The 6-foot-6 Landers joins previously committed Jacoby Davis Jr. at North Florida, giving the Ospreys and head coach Matthew Driscoll quite a solid stepping stone for UNF in 2011.

6-foot-8 big man Kameron Dunnican has given his verbal announcement to attend Georgia Southern. Dunnican, rated as the 25th best center in the class of 2011, according to, is a native of South Carolina and chose the Eagles over Appalachian State.

5-foot-11 point guard Jevonte Thomas has decided to continue his playing career at the University of Houston. A native of Irving, Texas, Thomas will move a little further south in the state and join the likes of Jherrod Stiggers for the Cougars class of 2011.

Temple has picked up the commitment of point guard Will Cummings, one of the more highly regarded guards in the class of 2011. Rated as the 93rd best point guard in the class, Cummings should be an instant bonus in the back court for Fran Dunphy with his great speed and quickness.
