6-foot-10 center Cliron Hornbeak of St. Francis de Sales (OH) just picked up his third offer from Kent State this week.
Head coach Rob Senderoff and assistant coach Aaron Fuss have developed, “a really great relationship,” with Hornbeak so far. They’ve kept in contact and once they hopped on a zoom call recently, the staff decided to offer him a scholarship.
He’s hoping that he can get up to visit the campus in September if the pandemic subsides.
Kent State joins Robert Morris and Albany State as the programs that have offered him. NJIT, Rider, Virginia Tech, Bowling Green, Toledo and Duquesne are also showing interest as well.
“Coaches like my foot work,” he said. “And my soft touch around the rim, and my size, of course.”
The next step of his development is behind able to put the ball on the floor and make plays. He said that he has continued to work on his jump shot and ball handling ability, so he’s that more dynamic on the offensive end.
