Charlotte 49ers pick up first freshman member of 2013 class

  

   On Wednesday, Cameron Blakley, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound senior power forward from Apalachee High School in Winder, Ga., is expected to sign a letter of intent to play for Charlotte.

   Blakley’s high school coach, Kevin Morris, confirmed Blakley verbally committed to the 49ers after making a visit to the school last week.

   Blakley, who averaged 16.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game this season, also received offers from Northwestern, East Carolina, Furman and USC Upstate, his coach said.

   "I think Cam is a good fit for Charlotte," Morris said. "He’s a big-time shot blocker and he and can step out and shoot the 3-pointer."

   Morris said Blakley was already academically eligible. Blakley is the first freshman for the 49ers’ 2013 recruiting class.

Five more scholarships to go! Got any friends you want to bring here with you Cameron?

And the music goes round and round and it comes out here. Let's see if Major can keep Cameron until he, too, (Major that is) has been told to leave.

Could yesterday's basketball news be any worse for Charlotte? Davidson takes a big step up and moves into a multi-bid A-10. We, dripping with zero enthusiasm and momentum, go into a 1 bid league. And, two players that Major identified both leave. That's 4 of HIS recruits, right? Luka, Demario, E-Vic and Darion. Sounds like an epidemic. Good luck selling this product.

I'm ashamed of the manner in which the athletic department has (or has not) handled the basketball program.

Hopefully all the "Hit Squad" attitude has be kicked off the team and Cameron can play 4 years cancer free!

There is nothing to be ashamed of on this basketball team! Alan runs a clean program and we just had one of our most successful season is recent history!
We are going to be a young team next year - but Alan is hitting the 2014 class hard! Give him 4 more years to lead this team to the championships!!!

LOL Four more years? God help us...

Anon 4:17, this is the FOURTH year in a row the Alan Major supporters are using the "Young" excuse. The only reason we are young is because Major cannot retain players. Four more years only if we make the NCAA next year.

I think Cam will be a good replacement for Clark, not immediately, but it sounds like he's got more potential in the long run.

If your self esteem is based on some basketball team you don't play for, then it's already in the toilet.

The UNCC basketball program has never been the same following the exodus of great rivals from C-USA in 2005--Charlotte being left behind (lacking a football program). The journey through several poor A-10 seasons has resulted in reduced fan support and ongoing player/coach strife. Now, its back to C-USA, a league with no-name schools, that is a mere shadow of its former self. The program is suffering under leadership that is suspect. What's next in this backward direction?

^^^^^ Whoa. You forgot about the strides our women's programs have made.

And, the woman with the name of the football building is one of life's great ironies. Stall it (adding football) as long as you can and then take all the credit. It's not her fault her name is on the building. It's just a damn shame. And, it's why we are back to our former Sun Belt days in a league of also-rans and no-one-cares.

8:36----yeah right, no one cares. Thats why there were 14,000 out at our spring game and why 6-7,000+ still show up for our basketball games even in bad years (top 80-90 nationally). As for C-USA, it is still among the top 2 or 3 non-BCS leagues in the nation. COnsidering football makes all decisions, I'd say we are in a remarkably good position.

NFL is a total bigoted racist sleezey league who has intentionally black balled Tebow

Tebow only has 2 NCAA titles at the #1 football school in America and 18,000 APY breaking many records and destroying MLB who set bountys on him as he laughed at them.

Elway was ordered to send TT to NYC to be under the NFL front office nose so he would NOT be played and succeed.

It was all a conspiracy and that jackass Richardson fatass hoghead was in on it signing the biggest scammer all time in Newton was too big to fail.
Tebow is too big too succeed.

NFL going DOWN !!!!!!!

This is BIG NEWS !!!!!

NFL hates 1st Amendement Rights of freedom of speech and religion !!!

Prob took ther orders from the WH.


Die Richardson you big fat ass lying caniving POS !!!You are a major player on this ...
And what a PR Gimmick on resigning Kasay to try to backtrack and clean up your dirty ass ...

FUCK FATASS LIAR HOG RICHARDSON !!!

YOU GOING DOWN BOY !!!!

i noticed the niners have won 8 consecutive conference baseball games to take over 1st place. why no mention of this? is the observer afraid uncc may sell some tickets to the upcoming tournament being played at uncc? that would be so typical.

NFL.com sports writer on target with Richardson's Panthers (who just extorted 80 million from taxpayers after wanting 300 million) a joke and impotent braindead Rivera and the Scam Newton overrated nothing of a fluke who was 11-11 in high school and had a rap sheet a mile long before scmming his way to Richardson.

Hire somebody who knows what he is doing and directed the winningest program in the history of the state and America like Tom Knotts at Charlotte Independence HS with 109 public school consecutive wins and straight 7 state 4A titles.

Once you hire Knotts as head coach and fire Rivera and sell Newton, then sign ex- NCAA champions Florida Gators Tebow and Leak to be QBs who have 3 NCAA titles between them.
Tebow and Leak can interchange at QB.
Tebow can double at FB/RB and/or MLB and Leak could double at WR. Leak is perfect size for QB/WR and a foot taller than washed up midget SS who proved size does not matter at WR.

Once you take out the trash and sign Tebow and Leak you get utmost instant integrity and academic superior quality plus perfect role models for all school kids to look up to and emulate.
