Recruiting, injury updates

Some Charlotte 49ers basketball updates:
  • It appears the 49ers have lost out on two potential recruits in the past week. Former Tennessee player Duke Crews has decided to transfer to Bowie State, an NCAA Division II school where he will be eligible to play right away. Crews, a consensus top-10 player out of high school, had narrowed his Division I choices to Charlotte and Pittsburgh. He made an unofficial visit to the Charlotte campus last month. Also, 6-foot-3 swingman J.T. Terrell, the son of former 49ers plater James "Trigger" Terrell, committed to Wake Forest this week. The rising high school junior was also a target for the 49ers and had visited campus during a game last season. J.T. Terrell also had offers from Miami (Fla.) and Virginia. He averaged 25.7 points, five rebounds and three assists per game last season for Burlington Cummings.
  • Rising Charlotte sophomore forward Gaby Ngoundjo suffered a plantar fascia strain while playing pickup basketball last week and is wearing a protective boot on his injured foot. He is scheduled to have a magnetic resonance imaging test Wednesday to rule out further injury. The plantar fascia, or arch ligament, is a band that runs from under the heel to the front of the foot. Most such injuries heal after two to three weeks.

This is preceisely why it is so hard to recruit. You get a kid who is going to be a star and whose Dad played for the 49ers and he picks an ACC school. Damn. So much for Trigger 2.
