Redhawks men and women add recruits

(KFVS) -

On the start of the NCAA spring signing period, both the Southeast Missouri State men and women's team received letters of intent from players signing for the 2013-'14 season.

The Redhawk men signed shooting guard Antonius Cleveland out of Faith Baptist prep school in Atlanta. Cleveland evolved from a 5'8" point guard at the beginning of his high school days in Memphis into a 6'5" late bloomer who is a prolific scorer.

Cleveland averaged 18 points, five rebounds and five assists per game last season.

"He's always been able to score, but now with his size, he's able to run and jump like we need him to and separate himself from a defender trying to get his own shot," said Redhawks head coach Dickey Nutt.

The Redhawk women signed two more players, upping their total to six for the current recruiting class.

Forward Brittany Harris out of Dexter, Mo. signed for coach Ty Margenthaler's club. Harris was the Lady Bearcats' all-time leading scorer, and earned All-State honors during three seasons.

"She wanted to be a Redhawk, and that means something to us," Margenthaler said. "The thing she really brings to the table is she brings a little size to us, she knows how to score. I like local kids. And you can't teach kids how to put the ball in the hole and she definitely can."

Also joining the Redhawks is JUCO transfer Hillary Lively, who comes from Danville Area Community College. Lively led the nation in field goal percentage (61.6 percent) last season, and averaged a team-best 11.9 points per game.
