LAKELAND, Fla. — Southeastern University men’s basketball coach R-Jay Barsh has announced his 2017 recruiting class, which will be on campus this fall.
A total of seven new players join the Fire, which posted a 13-16 record last season.
“This is a versatile recruiting class,” said Barsh. “We added some size, which we needed. I’m excited about how good our guards are at competing and putting the ball in the basket.
