The initial signing day for college basketball’s regular period is Wednesday, and while Air Force gained many of their commitments a while ago, here’s a peek at what the Falcons’ 2012 recruiting class looks like.
The preliminary list that follows was culled from recruiting site Rivals.com and reports from news outlets around the country (heights and weights were from Rivals.com, ESPN.com or berecruited.com). Air Force does not announce its class before the recruits arrive at the academy because of academy rules. Most or all of these players will go to the prep school:
Justin Cousin, SG
6-2, 190; Burlington, N.C. (Graham)
Cousin committed last October, shortly after visiting Air Force and attending the Falcons’ football game against TCU, according to the Times-News in Burlington, NC. Here’s a great story on Cousin, his school’s all-time leading scorer.
Hayden Graham, SG
6-5, 180; Austin, Texas (Anderson)
Graham agreed back in November to come to Air Force – here is the story from his pretty in-depth website. He has a reputation as a good perimeter shooter.
Tyler Harris, SG
6-4; Bakersfield, Calif. (Christian)
Harris averaged 23.9 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, according to Bakersfield.com.
Nick Jorgensen, SF
6-6, 180; Minnetonka, Minn. (Hopkins)
Jorgensen didn’t become a starter until his senior year, but was a productive sixth man on a deep team before that. He was named third-team all-state by ESPN.com before the season.
Eric Lewis, PF
6-8, 225; Scottsdale, Ariz. (Horizon)
Here’s a story on Lewis, who could add some size for the Falcons down the road.
Darrius Parker, C
6-5, 205; Allen, Texas (Allen)
Parker is listed as a center by recruiting websites, and his height is listed anywhere from 6-5 to 6-7.
Joe Tuss, PF
6-7, 220; Las Vegas, Nev. (Durango)
Tuss committed to Air Force in early February. The Las Vegas Sun said he is a 6-7 shooting guard, and added he is a great 3-point shooter, so his size and shooting ability should fit well with the Falcons.
