Three players, including 6-0, 165-pound DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, MD) PG Lewis Witcher, signed letters of intent for head coach Seth Greenberg last month. Techsideline.com caught up with three top recruiting analysts ï¿½ PrepStars.com Talent Evaluator Brick Oettinger, Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Dave Telep and TSLï¿½s own guru, Rev. Zeke ï¿½ for analysis on Coach Greenbergï¿½s 2006 class.
Dave Telep: Nigel Munson is going to give them a presence, kind of an extension of the coach at the point guard position, but I think the guy that may come in and help them the most as a freshman is Lewis Witcher. Heï¿½s a guy who, with his back to the basket, you can dump him the basketball and heï¿½s going to turn and score. Heï¿½s got a move and heï¿½s going to be a good player inside for them.

Brick Oettinger: Lewis Witcher has a lot of promise. I think he could be the best of the lot even though we have him ranked at #143. He doesnï¿½t show you a whole lot of offensive tools right now. He has a little bit of a turnaround jump shot. Heï¿½s another kid who is close to 6-9. They may list him 6-8, but heï¿½s going to be 6-9. Heï¿½s a rangy kid who is going to fill out and get stronger. Heï¿½s not what youï¿½d call weak, though. Heï¿½s an aggressive player and an extremely
