College of Charleston Continues to be the Small Fish in a Big Pond

UPDATE:   

When a program loses a legendary head Coach no matter the circumstances it's usually a blow to the program.  Especially in terms of recruiting. So when Head Coach Bobby Cremins left the College of Charleston one would expect the Cougars, who have routinely showed that they can play with anyone in the nation at times one would expect the recruiting pipeline to run dry. Doug Wojcik certainly has a lot of work cut out for him but nabbing two solid recruits in the 2014 class is a solid step in the right direction.

Shooting guard Evan Bailey out of Massillon, Ohio is a 6'5 175 pound scoring guard that can absolutely shoot the lights out. Bailey is not only an excellent catch-and-shoot guard but is also a great shooter off the dribble as well. Bailey can also put the ball on the floor and drain the mid-range jumpshot as well. Bailey's gane mirrors that of a young Adam Morrison. Also coming to the Cougars is power forward Nick Harris. Harris is a 6'9 forward coming from St.Pius X out of Atlanta, Georgia. Harris is a throw back big man that can do all the dirty work a coach could ask for downlow. Tough and gritty, Harris' length and athleticism will be a problem for opposing teams going forward. Harris is also both a willing and capable passer. Harris' game most closely mirrors that of the New Jersey Nets Andray blatche.

It's hard to replace a long time coach like Cremins. Many programs lose their legendary coaches and are never quite able to regrain their footing going forward. Bailey and Harris are signs that the recruiting at the College of Charleston is alive and well.
