Could this be the best week ever for WKU basketball recruiting? Could this even be the best night ever?
Following the official start to the basketball season with Hilltopper Hysteria, WKU struck gold with its highest rated recruit ever. Via Ustream, four-star point guard Cezar Guerrero gave his commitment to WKU.
Literally moments later, the Toppers had picked up another verbal commitment. A surprise late visitor for the weekend, Wheeler (Ga.) three-star forward Nigel Snipes also pledged his commitment.
A multi-dimensional wing, Snipes was just recently a target of assistant coach Allen Edwards. Snipes chose the Toppers over an offer list that included West Virginia, Arkansas-Little Rock and Delaware.
Snipes is the fourth commit this week for WKU, joining Guerrero, Warren Central (Ky.) three-star forward George Fant and Veritas Sports Academy (NC) three-star center Deng Leek. Rivals150 guard Derrick Gordon has been committed since last summer and was also an official visitor this weekend.
