Notre Dame Men's Basketball | Nov. 13, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
University of Notre Dame men's basketball coach Mike Brey had a very simple recruiting plan for 2013. With considerable perimeter depth in hand for the next couple of years, Brey and his staff had just one focus -- frontline players.
The 14-year Irish mentor announced the signing today of two frontcourt players to his 2014-15 roster. Bonzie Colson, Jr., a 6-6, 200-pound forward out of New Bedford, Mass., and Martin Geben, a 6-9, 230-pound forward from Vilnius, Lithuania., have signed National Letters of Intent during the early signing period on Wednesday morning (Nov. 13.). The duo will enroll at Notre Dame in the fall of 2014.
"We really focused on frontline players in this year's recruiting class," Brey says. "We felt that we were in good shape with our perimeter depth. With Tom Knight and Garrick Sherman leaving the program after this season, this was our focus.
