New Coach Darrell Glenn continues to work hard to fill in his prospective roster for this coming season and has shared that UPEI has secured a commitment from 6’3″ Dakelle Brooks, who last season played at Southwest Basketball Academy in London, ON.
Brooks, originally from Halifax, NS (Auburn Drive H.S.), moved to Toronto two seasons ago to play at BTB Academy before moving to Southwest and projects as another solid athlete on the wing for the Panthers, quickly transforming into a group that will emphasize defense and rebounding and build from that foundation. Brooks played his club/AAU ball with the Northern Kings and is rated by North Pole Hoops as the #66 prospect in the Class of 2017.
Glenn continues to work the recruiting trail with a view of having a very competitive first training camp with other recruits likely to be added prior to the start of camp in early September.
