We were just made aware, 2012 recruit, Fred Van Vleet has committed to Wichita State. This just days after his visit to Wichita State. We mentioned that Coach Ford was the lead recruit on Van Vleet’s recruitment, and Chicago Hoops who broke the story, mentions how much of a vital role Dana Ford played in the recruitment of Fred. This is a huge recruiting win for Wichita State, and a huge get for Dana Ford, who can now pinpoint the start to his Wichita State career, with the recruitment of Van Vleet.
Fred Van Vleet is the #1 Point Guard recruit in Illinois for the class of 2012, and is the #2 overall recruit from his state as well. Fred is a pure point guard with great court vision, a high hoops IQ, and some silky sweet dribbling and passing skills. The future continually looks bright for The Shockers, and I can’t wait to see what we do within the next few years.
