July 11, 2012The July Evaluation Period opened with a strong Tevon Saddler showing. Capable of playing either shooting guard or small forward Saddler recently got a call from Cincinnati.
"I heard from Cincinnati for the first time three weeks ago," said Saddler. "I don't remember which coach."
Since Saddler preps in Baltimore odds are good that it was Antwon Jackson. The newest member of the UC staff has great connections in Washington D.C. and northern Virginia. Baltimore tends to overlap with D.C. in the AAU realm. Many of the players are familiar with each other.
Saddler's coach lists Rhode Island, West Virginia, Loyola Marymount, Xavier, and Oregon State as interested.
Tevon reports URI, Virginia Tech, Hawaii, Cincinnati, and Delaware.
The Bearcats have not offered. Saddler has a game that resembles Josh Hart, a player holding the UC offer already. While Hart plays for Team Takeover Saddler reps B'More's Finest AAU squad.
Cincinnati could be able to get Hart on campus in August. Either player would add to a deep backcourt under Coach Cronin's direction.
Saddler's older brother plans signed with Delaware. Publisher of TheRecruitScoop Alex Kline reported Saddler's interest in USF, as well.
The skills that make Saddler attractive are a muscular frame, tidy handle, and great speed.
