Miners Sign Four To Start Signing Period

New, 5 comments

As we have been expecting, four of the possible five commits have put pen to paper as UTEP officially announces today's signings.

Head Coach Tim Floyd officially announces that Earvin Morris, Terry Winn, Lew Stallworth, and Marqywell Jackson have all signed their National Letters of Intent on Wednesday.

Of course we were all glued to Twitter this morning, and UTEP has confirmed all the reported signings are official.

The tetrad joins Chris Sandifer, Trey Touchet, and Omega Harris as officially signed members of the 2014 class.

Coach Floyd had this to say about each of the new signees in a release from UTEP.

Lew Stallworth

"Lew is a safe passer who does a great job of getting in the lane and finding open teammates. He can make the open three. He is a very good foul shooter. He is a very tough defender. We love the fact that any team he plays on wins. Kenny Smith was his AAU coach and actually coached him beginning in elementary school. He has always been a mentor to Lew, and he even told me that he modeled his game after Kenny's. He is a very vocal player who will be an extension from the coaching staff and a great leader at the point guard position."

Terry β€œTrey” Winn

"Terry is somewhat of a midsize player who can help us at multiple positions. He will help us defend against undersized players. He can score both in the post and make plays in the open court. He made a lot of improvement to his game with his year at Westwind. He has great feet and will really be able to defend. He is also a very explosive athlete. He has a strong ability to rebound out of his area."

Marqywell Jackson

"Marqywell has great length for a perimeter player. He is very good in the open floor. He has really good upside. He has the ability to be a good defender. He can really, really score. I think he's a guy that can really shoot it and come off pindowns, which is something we need moving forward. He really rebounded it well from the guard spot as a senior."

Earvin Morris

Earvin is a very versatile player who can play different positions and score in a lot of ways. He is a very instinctive passer, has the ability to shoot the three and can create his own shot. He played at a very competitive level in junior college. He can come in and help our team score in a variety of ways. We love his ability to post in addition to being able to face the basket. He has a very nice mid-range game, which is rare in today's game."

Very active day as expected, but is this the final bow on the 2014 class?

The period lasts until May 21st, we will keep you updated on any happenings, and like we all have been saying, nothing is really official until we see these guys on campus.
