I have heard that the Bobcat coaching staff is recruiting Bruce English of La Verne Lutheran high school in La Verne California. English is team mates with another 2011 recruit J.C. Cooper as well as incoming Bobcat freshman Jordan Salley. Last season La Verne won the California Div. 4 State championship with and finished the season with a 28-8 record, and won their final 12 games to take the championship. The La Verne team was made up totally of underclassmen (Salley had to sit out the year with a knee injury), and are favored to repeat again this year.
For this coming season La Verne will feature 3 seniors, 2 juniors and one sophomore who are all receiving serious D-1 recruiting attention.
English is a 6-1 combo guard who averaged 12 points, 3 assist, 4 rebounds 2 steals while shooting 59% from the field, 30% from three point range (although he did not take that many 3 point shots) and 66% from the charity strip. English is an extremely athletic and explosive player. He has a knack for drawing fouls. I read where his coach once described him as the energizer bunny on the floor. He has good range out to about 16 feet but will need to improve his range in college. This summer he was named a top 20 player selection at the 2010 Pangos All-American tournament. He was also rated as the #4 senior combo guard prospect in California by FullCourtPress.com.
