Head Coach Jamion Christian on the Mount's Recruiting Class

All quotes from the official Mt. St. Mary's release on the incoming class.

"This class of Mount freshmen will continue to help us build our program into an annual top four contender in the Northeast Conference," said Head Coach Jamion Christian.  "Through our recruiting, we always want to increase our size, speed and athleticism and we are thrilled to say that we have been able to do so in the early signing period.  All of this year's recruiting class contains the components that will help to take Mayhem and the Mount to the next level."

On Troy Henderson:

"Troy is a scoring wing who is an excellent shooter from beyond the three point line," said Christian.   "His size and reach with the ability to guard bigger scoring wings on the wing are an asset as is his ability to knock down outside shots from the perimeter.  He comes to us from a great program in Charlotte (Gaston Day School) where he plays for a great head coach in Kenny Burr."

On Chris Manning

"We love keeping local talent close to home and we were able to do so with Chris," said Christian.  "He is comes to us from Randallstown high school where he played for Kevin English.  Chris embodies everything that we are looking for in a Mount student.  One of the top student's in his class at Randallstown, he also partakes in several activities off of the floor.  On the floor, his ability to get off of the floor quickly will help him to block shots and finish above the rim in our ball screen sets."

On Mo Sallah:

"Mo is a big man with a great upside and ability to rebound the ball against anyone.  We love bigs that play above the rim and that protect the rim through shot blocking," said Christian.  "Mo gives us a rim protector with size.  He comes to us after a prep year at Fishburne Military Academy where he starts for one of the nation's best prep schools."

On Junior Robinson

"Junior is an explosive, prolific scoring point guard out of the state of North Carolina who possess 4.3 40-yard dash speed, and a 40-plus inch vertical leap," said Christian.  "Junior will join us from Eastern Alamance High School, where he has been their starting point guard for four years.  Junior's ability to create for others and score from beyond the three point line makes him the perfect fit for the Mount." 

On Chris Wray

"Chris brings to us the ability to guard all five positions and he is a winner at every level that he has played," said Christian. "He comes to the Mount from first Shelby high school where he was a three-year starter and after one prep year at Fishburne Military academy for a great Coach in Ed Huckaby.  He is a  tenacious defender, shot blocker, and on-ball defender that we will use in a multitude of ways to continue to improve our defense."
