Previewing Potential JUCO Transfers: Wabash Valley College

Wabash Valley College (Mount Carmel, Illinois)- (20-2)

Brandon Dunson 6'3" Guard- Normal, Illinois (Bloomington Central Catholic)
Brandon is a dynamic guard who was obviously confused by the recruiting process and where he saw himself as a basketball player coming out of high school. Originally recieving scholarship offers from 15 schools out of high school, he chose University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, where he attended for one semester. Believing he was too far from home, he transferred to SIU-Edwardsville, where he played for a semester before realizing that was not going to be a long-term fit either, and he ended up at Wabash Valley. After a year of finding himself, Brandon will head to Arizona State next year, as Herb Sendek's first JUCO pick-up. Dunson also had offers on the table from Nevada-Reno and Oklahoma State.

Brandon McGee 6'7" Forward- Chicago, Illinois (Crane High School)
McGee, similar to his teammate with the same first name, has also already attended two division one schools. But instead of choosing to leave, McGee has been dismissed from both Indiana University and Auburn University. A very talented and versatile post player, McGee may get another chance to redeem himself at a D1 school. Arkansas, Georgia State, Marquette, Murray State and South Alabama have shown interest. But teams may be reluctant to pull the trigger on this former 3* prospect because of his past problems both academically and in violating team rules.

Omar Sanders 6'7" Forward- Spartanburg, South Carolina (Spartanburg HS)
Omar is an athletic wing player who transferred from Spartansburg JC, after recieving some D1 interest out of high school. Sanders is now recieving low-to-mid major attention from schools like Georgia State, Mid Tennessee State, Western Carolina, Wright State, Winthrop and SC Upstate.

Josh Lockett 6'8" Forward- Pensacola, Florida
Blu Lockett, as he is called, is a very hard working big who has greatly improved his game at the JUCO level. He has committed to play at the D1 level for Southeast Louisiana State next year.

Desmond Holloway 6'3" Guard- Indianapolis, Indiana (Manual High School)
Desmond has been the leading scorer on the Wabash team the last two years. He has recieved recruiting interest from the likes of Murray State, Portland State, Tennessee Tech and Wichita State among others.

Cornelius Chatt 6'2" Guard- Madison, Illinois (Madison High School)
COMMITTED: SIU Edwardsville
