Andre Yates to the MVC

Andre Yates (Dunbar HS, OH) became the second commitment for the Creighton Bluejays in the 2012 recruiting class joining Isaiah Zierdan (Benilde St. Margaret, MN) , the sharpshooter from Golden Valley, Minnesota.

Yates, a 5-11 point guard, had offers from Cleveland State, Dayton, Morehead State and Nebraska but ultimately chose the Blue Jays after spending the weekend on campus.

"The atmoshphere is crazy," he said. "The community supports Creighton 100-percent. The Quest Center is amazing and after my visit, I wanted to go right back."

The quick, smooth lefty guard has continued to add to his game and should be a great asset to the Blue Jays. He has continued to develop a point guard feel rather than just being a scoring threat at the one.

I'm not ready to call this a huge steal for Creighton but it sure will look that way if he's able to clean up his decision making at the point.
