The Providence Friars are now rolling on the recruiting with the commitment of shooting guard Ricardo Ledo.

The dream backcourt is complete for the Providence Friars. Already with Kris Dunn in the fold, Providence now has his running mate in No. 25 overall prospect Ricardo Ledo. The 6-foot-6 scorer once again pledged his services to the Providence Friars.

Ledo must be a big fan of national holidays and Providence. The first time around Ledo committed to Providence on Christmas day, and after de-committing he again selected the Friars, this time on Labor Day.

Via text message Ledo confirmed the news that he has selected Providence, simply responding “yes” when asked if he committed to Providence.

By selecting Providence, Ledo becomes the third commitment for new coach Ed Cooley in the 2012 class. Ledo is the highest rated of the three joining Dunn, who is ranked No. 26 and three star wing Josh Fortune.

This pledge should vault the Friars at or near the top five of the current recruiting class rankings as it stands today, and also means the Cooley era is off to a great start.
