Recruiting update

No official word yet from any of the Big 4 schools after the first day of the early signing period for basketball, but here’s a recap of the verbal commitments each school received:

UB: Xavier Ford of Harrison High School in Colorado Springs Colo. gave the Bulls a commitment in September. He’s a 6-8, 205-pound small forward who reportedly drew interest from Tulsa, Portland, Northern Colorado, Loyola-Marymount, Northeastern and Loyola-Illinois.

Canisius: The Griffs brought in transfer David Santiago, a 6-4 guard from American University in Bayamon, who is sitting out this year and have three seasons remaining. They reportedly have offered a scholarship to 6-4 small forward Immanuel Thomas of Xaverian High School in Brooklyn.

Niagara: Joe Mihalich traveled to Philly once again and nabbed 6-4 small forward Ameen Tanksley and 6-3 combo guard Juan’ya Green, who are brothers.

St. Bonaventure: The Bonnies are expected to sign two guards: Derrick Millinghaus, who once played at Nichols School and attends Queen City Prep in North Carolina and junior college point guard Eric Mosley from Cincinnati State. Millinghaus has already confirmed via Twitter that he has signed with the Bonnies. Mosley has been well coached by former Cincy PG Andre Tate.
