CHICAGO (WSCR) — The DePaul Blue Demons continue to add to their impressive recruiting class. On Wednesday, the school announced that they’ve signed Baltimore-native Montray Clemons to a National Letter of Intent.
“Montray is a very versatile player that gives us even more flexibility with the things we are trying to do,” Oliver Purnell said of the sixth signee in his first recruiting class at DePaul. “I believe he will fit with our pressure defense and pressure offense system.”
The 6-8 forward played at Mack Academy last season in Charlotte, N.C. He spent his first three prep seasons Baltimore Poly in his hometown of Baltimore, Md. Clemons was a teammate current Blue Demon Cleveland Melvin in the Cecil Kirk AAU program.
Montray will join Macari Brooks (Richton Park, Ill.), Jamee Crockett (Crete, Ill.), Shane Larkin (Orlando, Fla.), Charles McKinney (Evanston, Ill.) and Derrell Robertson (Mendenhall, Miss.) as the Blue Demons’ 2011-12 freshman class.
The incoming freshman will be joined by transfer Donnavan Kirk who will be eligible to play following the conclusion of 2011 Autumn Quarter exams just before the Thanksgiving holiday. Kirk redshirted his freshman year (2010-11) at Miami (Fla.).
