October 11, 2011 – Since taking the Towson University’s men’s
basketball reigns in May, Pat Skerry and his staff have hit the recruiting
scene hard, roaring up and down the East Coast in search of players. The
outlook of Tigers Basketball is trending upward, while conversely those
of other Colonial Athletic Association teams may not be as rosy.

Despite that impressive upcoming haul, Skerry et al are
apparently not intent on relaxing, as this past weekend saw the Tigers
hosted 15 players for unofficial visits, including several from the District-Maryland-Virginia
region: Class of 2013 players Kelvin Howard and Jarius Lyles – both
DeMatha Catholic (MD) students and Team Takeover AAU standouts participated.
Joining them were Gonzaga (DC) student athlete Charles Glover, plus rival
WCAC, Paul VI (VA) performers Jamal Robinson, Marcus Derrickson and Quandre
Smith. Robinson joins the others in the Class of 2013, while Smith is
a 2014 guy and Dickerson will graduate high school in 2015.
