Kenny Wormely, a 6-3 guard from Maryland who plays for Riverdale Baptist and Team Takeover on the AAU circuit, officially became the Saints' first verbal commitment for the '15 season on Friday night.
If that AAU team sounds vaguely familiar, there's a good reason. Rising sophomore and Siena point guard Marquis Wright played for the same team and, according to reports, Wormely is very much in the same vein as far as the style he brings to the court. In fact, there's also some word that Wormley will be Wright's heir apparent when he graduates in 2017.
Of course, we're all getting a little ahead of ourselves with prospects of the 2017 team, so let's focus on what Wormley brings to the hardwood right now.
According to Verbal Committs, he's a two-star recruit with a game that is exactly the kind of style you'd look for in a take-over point guard. He's strong, he's aggressive, but he doesn't try to force the offense and he's more than capable of directing a play on the floor.
Prior to verbally committing to Siena, Wormley had already received an offer from Florida Gulf Coast and had gotten interest from schools like George Mason, Rider, Sacred Heart and UNC-Wilmington.
Don't worry about the mistake in his tweet, he went back later last night and updated it. It's still Siena College.
