CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina men’s basketball team added a pair of players to the 2011-12 signing class as Tristian Curtis and Justin Daniel signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Chanticleers next season, head coach Cliff Ellis announced Monday.
Curtis, a 6-foot-8 forward by way of Sugar Land, Texas, played at Lamar Consolidated High School. “I am really excited about Tristian, he has tremendous athletic ability and runs the floor really well for a forward,” said Ellis. “He is very versatile and can play both facing the basket and with his back to it. He will make an immediate impact for our team.”
The 6-foot-4 guard, Daniel will arrive at Coastal after playing one year at Cjeoto Prep School in New Jersey following his high school career at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, Texas. “Justin can play the two and three guard positions,” said Ellis. “He brings us an ability to score and is a tough defender on the other end of the court.”
“In addition to the two players we signed in the fall, I feel that this is the best recruiting we have had since I have been at Coastal,” added Ellis.
Daniel and Curtis join Michel Enanga (6-5, F) and Alioune Diagne (6-7, F), who signed in the fall as members of the 2011-12 Chanticleer signing class.
