NEWARK, Del. -- University of Delaware men's basketball head coach Monté
Ross has announced the signings of Zacarry Douglas, Barnett Harris,
Cazmon Hayes and DeVarte Watson, who recently signed National Letters of
Intent with UD and will join the Blue Hens in the 2013-14 season.
Douglas, a 6-7 wing from National Christian Academy in Fort Washington,
Md., averaged 12 points and nine rebounds as a junior while leading NCA
to a 24-10 record.
Harris, a 6-9 forward from Gateway High School in Monroeville, Pa., is
currently attending Fishburne Military Academy in Waynesboro, Va. He
averaged 12 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks as a senior last year as
Gateway won its second straight Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic
Athletic League title. Harris shot 50 percent from the field a year ago
for Gateway, and averaged 8.5 points and 6.7 rebounds as a junior.
Hayes, a 6-4 guard from Phillip O. Berry Academy in Charlotte, N.C.,
averaged 15.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game during his
junior season. Hayes reached double figures in 23 of 26 games, and
eclipsed the 16-point mark in 16 contests. This past weekend Hayes
scored 42 points in a game to break the Charlotte Hoops Challenge
Watson, a 6-7 forward from Oakbrook Prep in Spartanburg, S.C., was a
South Carolina Independent School Association All-Star and a Regional
III-2A first team selection last season as a junior. Watson was also
named Herald-Journal second team All-Area after averaging 16 points, 14
rebounds and four blocks for the Knights.
"These four young men are all good players, but more importantly they
are good students and good people," Ross said. "We are confident they
have the character to represent Delaware basketball, and will fit in
with what we are doing here academically, athletically, and socially."
