Men's Basketball Announces Five Newcomers For 2015
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba men’s basketball coach, Rob Perron, has announced five players for his 2015 recruiting class. The five incoming student-athletes are Nick Johnson (Raleigh, N.C.), Malik Constantine (Charlotte, N.C.), RJ Robinson, Jr. (Durham, N.C.), Jordan Barber (Matthews , N.C.), and Andrew Wheet (Concord, N.C.).
After an eye opening year in 2014-2015, the recruiting class has added more young firepower to their already explosive and deep roster. These five exceptional additions to the roster should all provide positive impacts on the Catawba College campus as well as on the basketball court.
Coach Perron, as well as the rest of the coaching staff, is thrilled to bring in such an outstanding group of student-athletes to Catawba College. All five will bring something different and unique to the program but all have the same mentality when it comes to success on and off the court. All five young men were highly decorated high school basketball players and will be strong additions to the men’s basketball team this upcoming season.
“We’re excited about this class,” said Perron. “We were able to bring in guys at four different positions and they are talented on and off the floor. They are high character kids that love the game and will develop into successful college basketball players.”
Johnson, a center, was an all-conference performer and a NC Private School All-Star at North Raleigh Christian Academy. While at Bunn High School from 2010-13, he helped win a conference title and to a spot in the state semifinals.
Constantine, a forward, earned all-district and all-conference twice at Olympic High School. He helped the team to a 19-5 mark as a senior.
Robinson, a guard, was a three-time all-conference and two-time all-district performer. He was also a team captain and a two-time MVP.
Barber, a guard, was captain for two seasons at Weddington High School and a team MVP. He helped the Warriors to a conference title.
Wheet, a guard, was a three-time all-conference pick at First Assembly. He was a two-time captain and team MVP, helping the Eagles to the playoffs.
