McCarty lands 2 more recruits for Aces basketball

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - What can't Walter McCarty do?

The 1st-time head coach is hot on the recruiting trail.

Wednesday's commitment by Colorado forward Will Becker is McCarty's 5th landed recruit for next season.

Becker, a 6' 9" senior out of Smoky Hill High School averaged 9.8 points per game, 2.1 assists, 9.9 rebounds and 3.7 blocks.

The Aurora native joins DeAndre Williams, Rosel Hurley, Shamar Givance, and Jawaun Newton as the first commits in McCarty's tenure.

Speaking with Coach on Wednesday, he likes what he sees and he thinks the fans will too.

"We're very excited with the guys we have coming here. The guys that you know about; these guys can play," McCarty said. "They're excited to be Aces; they're going to be able to contribute right away so we're very excited about the team we're putting together."

McCarty also said he plans to officially release the names of all of the recruits in the incoming class sometime next week including a list of all of the scholarship positions being filled.
