Multiple reports are surfacing on Saturday evening that 6-foot-2 guard DaVonte Beard
has verbally committed to Siena College.
Rivals.com 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.
