This from Ole Miss media relations. Looks like a kid that can perhaps be a defensive presence down low if not score a few points.
OXFORD -- Southwest Tennessee Community College forward DeAngelo Riley has signed a national letter of intent to join the Ole Miss basketball team for the 2009-10 academic year, head coach Andy Kennedy announced Friday.
At 6-9, 235 pounds, Riley will add a big presence under the basket for the Rebels. The Memphis native helped SWCC to a 27-3 record and No. 4 ranking as a sophomore. Riley was named to the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association All-Western Division team after averaging 12.1 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.9 blocked shots per game. He ranked 15th in the nation in blocks as a sophomore and also led his team with 95 blocks as a freshman.
"DeAngelo is a long, athletic frontcourt player who will have the opportunity to make an immediate impact with his ability to run the floor, block shots and score around the basket. He fills a void we needed to fill in order for our team to be as complete as possible," Kennedy said.
