It certainly was a big week for the Rams of Winston-Salem State University, grabbing two underrated and in-state prospects for their 2020 recruiting class.
After finishing the season with a 19-10 overall record and a 13-3 conference record, WSSU is going to need to replace some key pieces from this past season, especially at the guard position.
They certainly were able to do just that in the past week, securing two unsigned seniors from North Carolina. Farmville Central’s 2020 Samage Teel first announced that he would be committing to the Rams, hoping to bring his leadership and winning ways to the program.
Just a few days later, 2020 guard Isaac Parson announced that he too would be committing to WSSU, giving the coaching staff two building blocks for the future.
Parson is a guard that simply “stirs the drink” for a team, as he helped Kinston this season to a 26-4 overall record and averaged 8.4 assists per game. He plays fundamentally sound as a floor general but also takes advantage of the opportunities in front of him to score the ball well.
Teel is another proven winner and playing with a loaded squad at Farmville, he stepped up multiple times to showcase his talent. He simply does a lot of things on the court, doing what is needed for his team to win. Teel wants to bring his energy and strong mentality to Winston-Salem, as well as his ability to score on multiple levels and be a spot-up shooter.
For a team that is losing some key guards, including leading scorer Robert Colon (17.0ppg), the coaching staff for WSSU did a tremendous job securing two underrated guards that can make an early impact on the court and for the program.
