X Lands 'Spoon

JD Weatherspoon out of Northland High School in Columbus became Xavier's second commitment from the class of 2010 yesterday. He is currently rated as #135 overall in Rivals 150 for his class and is listed as a power forward at 6'6" with three stars. He plays for the loaded All Ohio Red AAU team which was dominant in summer ball this season. Think Bill Walker athleticism when you think of JD. If you don't believe me check out his highlight reel dunks up on Xavier Hoops and remember that was last high school season when he was a 15 year old sophomore. James Whitford is credited by JD with getting him to committ as well as our success of sending Ohio guys to the NBA (Posey, Grant, and Hill). Sure he has some improvements to make but we are starting to load the frontcourt with raw talent. At one point it was believed all tOSU had to do was offer but they are after bigger fish in Adreian Payne out of Dayton. Speaking of Dayton, the Flyers also wanted Weatherspoon. Another top 150 name to remember for 2010 is a face up power forward named Alex Gauna. He has already visited X and UD but will probably wait to make his decision.
