UTEP Basketball Still Looking to Add to Class of 2013?

According to Evan Flood of NY2LASPORTS.com UTEP, along with Baylor, Ole Miss, and Texas have offered scholarships to recently decommitted 2013 guard Demarcus Croaker.

Croaker, a 6'3 180lb guard out of Orlando, Fl, originally committed to play for the Murray State Racers, but recently decommitted in order to test the waters once again. Croaker still has three official visits available, and is looking to take them before making a final decision.

According to NY2LASPORTS.com, "Four programs have already reached out to the senior guard. As of Wednesday night, Baylor, Mississippi, Texas, and UTEP have contacted Croaker, who said all but Baylor have extended or re-extended an offer."

Croaker is considered a three star prospect by most recruiting outlets, and was given a recruiting grade of 75 by ESPN. Before committing to Murray State, he held offers from Texas, Florida State, Marquette, Miami, UCF, and Wichita State, among others.

In the NY2LA article, writer Evan Flood also quotes Croaker concerning UTEP: "They say they need somebody that can score. They said I can come in and play."

At this point, it is a bit unclear exactly where the Miners are as far as scholarships go. As it stands today, they are set to have 10 current players returning next season, with 6 incoming players joining in the fall. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, and what this team will look like come next season.
