The Falcons have landed their second 2013 men's basketball verbal, third if you count Josh Gomez who is transferring and will be eligible to play that year. The player is Garrett Mayleben of Milford, OH. He's 6'8" and announced his decision on twitter. Coach Stone referred to a verbal this AM on HIS twitter account and referred to the player (who he did not name) as a combo player/big man. We can draw the assumption he was talking about Mayleben.
He did not have eye-popping numbers as a HS Junior. He scored 7.6 PPG and had 4.7 RPG. He was offered scholarships by Wright State, Kent, Akron, The Citadel and Keeseaw State...two of those teams typically finish ahead of us, so that must mean something. The offer from Akron came in the middle of his junior season...which seems even more meaningful.
He was honorable mention all-league last year.
Welcome to the Falcons, Garrett.
