Mixed reports about Beard heading to Siena

Multiple reports are surfacing on Saturday evening that 6-foot-2 guard DaVonte Beard has verbally committed to Siena College. is reporting that Beard has verbally committed to play for the Saints and coach Mitch Buonaguro.

A tweet from Rodger Bohn, a Senior Writer for SLAM Magazine, later said he hasn't yet committed to Siena and cited a family source.

Beard is from Akron, Ohio and played for the same school as LeBron James, St. Vincent-St. Mary's.

Beard did visit Siena this weekend and FOX23 caught up with him, while playing with some of the Siena players.

This would be a big get for Buonaguro and the Saints, especially with the recent news that both Jonathan Breeden and Kyle Griffin won't return to the team.

Buonaguro can't comment on a recruit until a signed Letter of Intent has been sent to the school.

Beard would join a freshman class of Lionel Gomis, Imoh Silas and Robert Poole.

If Beard does commit, Siena would have two scholarships remaining.
