This is a brief recap of the announced signings on Wednesday’s National Signing Day

Austin Peay

Zach Glotta, HS SR, guard
5.1 points and 4.5 assists per game as point guard for Fort Zumwalt North High School

Loos on Glotta: “He has such a great feel on how to play the game. He is a tough, tough kid who is very skilled and we think has really good leadership qualities. I felt like during the summer in the AAU game he really led his team. He was the glue—he could really get them going.”

Stephen Harris, HS SR, guard
12.5 points per game while shooting 68 percent from the floor for Webster Groves

Loos on Harris: “Stephen is a slasher-type player who can really get to the rim. He can score in a multitude of ways. Right now he is more known for his ability to get to the rim than is his shooting ability. But the thing that really impressed us about him is his athleticism and his ability to score baskets.”



Seth Adelsperger, HS SR, 6’11 center
Averaged 14.6 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 2.3 blocked shots per game on 60 percent field goal percentage as a junior for Peru High School

Byrd on Adelsperger: “Seth Adelsperger is the type of low post player that has excelled in our basketball program over the years. He is a true, back to the basket offensive player with good scoring skills. He plays a physical style of game and will add much needed size and bulk to our lineup. Seth plays every possession with great effort and focus, and with his dedication to the game, we think he has tremendous upside. Our staff cannot wait to see him in a Belmont uniform.”

Dylan Windler, HS SR, 6’7 forward
Averaged 15 points, eight rebounds and two assists per game on 41 percent three-point shooting as a junior for Perry Meridian High School

Byrd on Windler: “Dylan Windler is a wing player with great size and length, but with the skills of a guard. He is an outstanding three-point shooter that can really put it on the floor. He also has a good understanding of the game and is a very competitive player. This was Dylan’s first July to concentrate on basketball instead of playing competitive golf and he enjoyed an outstanding summer. He is another excellent student who works really hard to improve his game. Our staff is appreciative of his decision to become a Bruin.”


Eastern Illinois

Lucas Jones, HS SR, 6’7 forward
Averaged 14 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game at Shawnee Mission East High School in Kansas

Spoonhour on Jones: “Lucas is a very active, tough, competitive player. Fundamentally, he has the ball skills to make the right plays, and knows the plays to make. I am really looking forward to having him here.”

A.J. Riley, JUCO SO, 6’4 guard (pictured)
As a freshman at John A. Logan he averaged 7.8 points and 1.9 assists per game

Spoonhour on Riley: “AJ can do a variety of things. He makes ‘point guard plays’ regardless of where he is playing on the floor. He can drive it, score in the post and he is a really good rebounder. The stuff he does wins games.”

Casey Teson, HS SR, 6’2 guard
As a junior, he averaged 17.5 points per game at St. Charles High School in Missouri

Spoonhour on Teson: “Everybody likes guys that make shots, and Casey can certainly do that. I wouldn’t say he is just a shooter, though. He scores in a lot of different ways and he handles the ball and passes as well as anyone. He has produced against the best players in the country.”


Murray State

Justice Green, HS SR, 6’5 guard
Green was named Alabama Class-6A Second Team All-State as a junior when he scored 16.6 points and grabbed 7.6 rebounds per game.

Prohm on Green: “Justice has great toughness and athleticism on the wing and that has been a trademark of our program. I love his personality. He’ll be a great fit in Murray.”

Cletrell Pope, HS SR, 6’9 forward
Pope played at Sunshine High School as a junior and earned Alabama Class-A All-State Second Team honors.

Prohm on Pope: “There is a tremendous upside with him. Truly, he has only begun to tap his potential. We’ve had great success in our program with a player of his skillset and I’m looking forward to his development in the future.”


Southeast Missouri

Robby Dozier, HS SR, 6’3 guard
He averaged close to 10 points and four rebounds per game as a junior at Marion High School.

Nutt on Dozier: “He is a young man who we had our eyes on simply because he can flat out shoot the ball. He comes from an outstanding family and plays for a great coach at Marion High School. We think Robby has the chance to become an outstanding college player. He is a gym rat, loves the game, can stretch the floor with his range and brings that swagger that it takes to be successful.”
