Radford Adds Three Big Boys

Byron Samuels' Radford team will sign at least three recruits during the early period. Each prospect comes to the program bringing size.

Byron Samuels' Radford Highlanders are about to get a little bigger. The Big South program will sign three recruits – each 6-7 or above – in the next week.

The first recruit to enlist with Radford is a unique story. J.J. Coley is married, has two kids and is 23. Let me explain.

In 1999, he played at Hillsborough JC in Florida. Coley then served three years in active duty with the Air Force before returning this season to hoops. In 1999, he averaged 15 points and 9 rebounds. He'll certainly bring a veteran presence to the team.

Josh Fox, a 6-8, 210 pounder out of Staunton (VA) Riverhead averaged 15.5 points and 9.3 boards. He considered VMI, Wofford, Loyola, Winthrop and American. He is the first player from his high school in 41 years to sign a Division I scholarship.

And finally, Colby Trent. The 250 pounder is from Richmond (VA) Henrico where he teams with Devon Dickerson to form an imposing frontline. Last season, Trent sat out the year with a broken leg.
