UCFV Announces Late Recruits

New Fraser Valley Head Coach Barnaby Craddock wasted little time in making an impact on his new program as UCFV welcomes 4 new, late recruits to his program including a high school recruit who scored 71 points in a game last season in 6'5" Ravi Athwal from Surrey, B.C. As well, a pair of college transfers come into the fold: 6'8" Mike McKay (transfer Kwantlen University College) who led the BC college league in rebounding last season and 6'4" Doug Plumb, who transfers over from NCAA Division II Minnesota State-Mankato. Plumb is originally from Surrey, B.C. who spent his last 3 years of high school in Minnesota but has decided to come home. Finally, Craddock secured the services of an international student 6'0" Tristan Smith, from Rolling Hills Prep in California. It is probable that all 4 players should have positive impacts on the Cascades program as Craddock did a stellar job recruiting after being on the job only a few weeks. UCFV played two games yesterday against Boise State and Idaho and we are attempting to obtain results for these games and gauge the impact of these new recruits. Here is a story from the UCFV web site announcing the new recruits
