Niagara Gazette — Chris Casey and the Niagara Purple Eagles coaching staff added their fourth recruit for the 2014-15 season on Tuesday, getting a verbal commitment from Denmark guard Anders Skou Hansen.
Adding to the busy day, the Purple Eagles also finalized the signing of forward James Suber, who inked his National Letter of Intent after committing June 27.
Hansen is listed as 6-foot-3, 185 pounds by StudentAthleteWorld.com, an international scouting and recruiting service. He averaged 24.7 points and 6.4 assists while playing for the Horsholm 79ers, a club team in Denmark.
The 20-year-old was on vacation overseas and was unavailable to comment, outside of confirming of his commitment via email.
Suber, a 6-foot-6 forward from Philadelphia, becomes the third new player to sign a NLI, joining guard Matt Scott and forward DayJar Dickson.
He averaged 11.5 points per game for the Philadelphia Electric and Technology Charter Chargers, which made the semifinals of both the Philadelphia Public School and Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AAA playoffs.
The additions leave Niagara with two open scholarships for this season after the losses of Marcus Ware (graduation), Antoine Mason, Tahjere McCall and Joe Thomas (transfers) and Aaron Bodie (personal).
