New UPEI Head Coach Darrell Glenn has hit the ground running on the recruiting trail as he transitions toward his first season with the Panthers, earlier today accepting a letter of intent from impact 6’1″ guard Moshe Wadley, ranked #82 by North Pole Hoops in the Class of 2016. Wadley, who began his high school career at Emery C.I. under legendary mentor Bob Maydo, played his final two seasons at a pair of U.S. prep schools: ’15-’16 at First Love Christian Academy in Washington, PA and last season at SOE (Standard of Excellence) Academy in Charlotte, NC. Wadley also played AAU/Club basketball with Canada Elite.
Pictured sitting above, Panthers first recruit under Glenn is flanked by his Carlos and Glenn’s lead Assistant Coach Rami Arabi, who also worked for Glenn for the past two seasons at Seneca with the Sting and coached Wadley as part of Canada Elite.
Wadley has the makings of a solid AUS combo guard with an explosive first step and the strength to get his shot off in traffic when attacking the rim. Glenn, who is completing his teaching obligations in North York by end of month and in the process of moving his family to Charlottetown, is likely to make further recruiting announcements in the coming weeks.
Glenn also advised that Seneca College transfer Yusuf Ali, originally set to join his former coach in Charlottetown, will now remain with the Sting to finish off his diploma and will not be with UPEI next season.
