Blaise Mbargorba, a center from The Peddie School in New Jersey, has signed with SMU.
The 7’0″, 230 lb. senior is the first ESPN 100 recruit to sign with the Mustangs since at least 2006, when ESPN began their recruiting list. Mbargorba also had offers from Marquette, Vanderbilt, Clemson, and (cough) my alma mater, Saint Joseph’s.
SMU is currently rated as the 302nd best team in NCAA Division I hoops, out of 344 schools, according to Real Time RPI. A Top 100 recruit would hopefully be a decent boost out of that basement.
