WKU recruiting Gordon’s high school teammate

The same school that produced Rivals.com four-star recruit Derrick Gordon has another player on WKU’s radar.

Dashawn Suber, a Rivals.com three-star point guard from the class of 2012 who transferred to St. Patrick’s (N.J.) before his junior year, said WKU is showing “heavy interest” in him.

WKU hasn’t officially offered him a scholarship, but Suber said he likes the thought of teaming up with his former high school teammate in college.

He said he plans to visit WKU in the next few weeks.

“I talked to Derrick a lot about the school,” he said. “Derrick was a role model type. It would be nice if I was able to play in college with him because he’s a very good teammate and he’s like a big brother to me.”

Several other mid-majors are interested in the point guard that helped lead St. Patrick’s to a No. 1 national ranking for six weeks last season and a runner-up finish in the mythical national championship.

Suber said Central Florida, Iona and Siena have all offered him scholarships, and Cincinnati remains interested. He said he plans on visiting all of those schools unofficially.

Suber described himself as a passer/point guard with the ability to score.

“I play pretty good defense too,” he said.

Suber plans to have a decision made by this fall and sign in the NCAA’s Early Signing Period in November.
