Shortly after our basketball recruiting update post was put out this morning, we found out via Twitter that UTEP will get another visit from a 2014 recruit, this one being 6'3 guard/forward D.J. Ursery out of Encino, CA.
The Tweet was put out by @CrespiAthletics:
UTEP head coach Tim Floyd was in the gym yesterday to watch DJ Ursery '14. DJ will travel to El Paso in 2 weeks for an official visit— CrespiAthletics (@CrespiAthletics) September 11, 2013
Ursery is considered a three star prospect by ESPN, and is given a recruiting grade of 70. He is considered a small forward, but at his size, would almost certainly play the guard position at the Division I level.
According to an LA Times post, Ursery recently received offers from Utah State, Weber State, Pacific, and Cal State Fullerton, and was previously offered by Cal State Northridge.
