Men’s Basketball Announces 2013 Recruiting Class

Coach Mike Davis

HOUSTON– Texas Southern University head men’s basketball coach Mike Davis has announced the signing of three basketball standouts for the 2013-14 campaign. Christian McCoggle (6-8, 210, Dallas, Texas, Wilmer Hutchins HS), Julian Reese (6-3, 210, Lavergne, Tenn., Georgia Perimeter College), and Tyree Bynum (6-1, 180, Philadelphia, Pa., Penn Wood HS) have all committed to joining the Texas Southern Men’s basketball program next season.

“When we started this process we sought talented, high character young men with a strong work ethic,” said Davis. “We’re very pleased with the student-athletes that we were able to bring into our program and we think they will all have an impact on the men’s basketball program at Texas Southern and will become the foundation for championship level performances on the court, in the classroom and throughout the campus community.”

Davis on Reese:
“He attacks the goal well and has a strong perimeter game. He is very clever with his ability to score the basketball and he has a very high basketball IQ. He has a great knack for finding ways to score points and he is a true student of the game. He is playing in a high level junior college program and that will prepare him to hit the ground running when he arrives on campus.”

Davis on McCoggle:
“Has a huge upside and we look forward to watching him have a very special career at Texas Southern. Christian brings with him an outstanding work ethic and he is committed to getting better each day. He is a very skilled 6-8 player that respects the game and the work that is required to be successful at this level. He is probably still growing and will bring some much needed size to our roster.”

Davis on Bynum:
“Very skilled player that knows how to breakdown defenses and has great deep and mid-range shooting ability. He is also a very tough player that understands the game well and is very excited about joining our program. He has been groomed on Philadelphia basketball and is currently one of the leading scorers in the state.”
