Talk about recruiting bonanza. Creighton head coach Greg McDermott another home run today when he received a fourth pledge this week and second from the Class of 2014. The verbals came in waves and now there’s more.
After securing a pair of 2013 verbals earlier in the week, Creighton concluded with two from rising juniors, the latest is forward Ezra Talbert of Olathe East High in Kansas. Talbert joins future classmate and 5-11 point guard Nick Norton of Rock Bridge (Columbia, Mo.), who verballed to the Bluejays on Wednesday. No surprise the duo are AAU teammates with 16U K.C. Run GMC.
Talbert is a 6-foot-7 slender wing from suburban Kansas City, who can fill it up from the perimeter and run the floor.
McDermott has one scholarship left for the Class of 2013 after 6-9 power forward Toby Hegner of Berlin (Wis.) and 6-5 combo guard Darian Harris of Shiloh Christian School (Springdale, Ark.) committed to the Bluejays this week. According to reports, the pair agreed to play at the Missouri Valley Conference entrant after forging a bond at Creighton’s player camp this month.
