The Moberly Greyhounds have already signed eight incoming players for the upcoming season. Coach Pat Smith feels this group will correct some deficiencies from last year.

Three are transfers: Dorian Staples, a 6’8″, 240 pound forward from Fredericksburg, Virginia, by way of Allegany Community College; Rashad Weekly-McDaniels, a 6’1″, 200 pound point guard from St. Louis, by way of Central Michigan; and Miles Mendes, 6’6″, 225 pound forward from Minneapolis, by way of Troy University.

The other new recruits are Jamaray Davenport, 6’0″, 170 pound wing from St. Louis; James Dent, a 6’5″ wing from Springfield, Illinois; John Orogun, a 6’9″ 250 pound post from Nigeria by way of Sunrise Christian Academy; Akili Evans, a 6’5″, 160 pound point guard out of Waterbury, Connecticut; and former Moberly Spartan Andre Bell, Jr., will also be a Greyhound.

Smith still has three scholarships to fill.

Four players are returning from last year’s team: Sincere Parker, Tyren Moore, Jordan Persad (per-SAD), and Makalani Kafele. The Greyhounds will open the season November 5th and 6th with a classic at home.
