That didn’t mean Pikiell was done. According to a report from Adam Zagoria, Rutgers has landed JUCO point guard Souf Mensah. Mensah plays for Marshalltown Community College in Iowa and weighs in at 210 pounds. He’s 6’2 and will eligible for the 2017-18 season.
Landing another point guard would allow both Nigel Johnson and Corey Sanders to play the scoring guard role and take pressure off of all three to bring the ball up the court.
Not much is known about Mensah via a quick internet search, but he did talk to Zagoria.
This is a big get for Pikiell, who now has a full recruiting class for 2017, barring anyone leaving. He also has a commitment from big man Mamadou Doucoure for the 2018 class.
More information as it comes.
