Spartans sign another; JMU continues to stockpile

The influx of talent continues at Norfolk State, which on Wednesday got a signed letter-of-intent from Tia Moore, a 5-7 guard out of E.E. Smith High in Fayetteville, N.C. Smith averaged a team-high 10.6 points per game for a Golden Bulls team that went 23-2 last season.  Wednesday is the first day of the regular (spring) signing period; the Spartans added four recruits during the early signing period last November. One of them, New Jersey's Rae Corbo, sounds like quite the player. Here's how described her 2009-10 season in naming her to their All-Suburban team:

The 2007 co-Freshman of the Year repeats on the first team after propelling the Paladins (23-6) to a spot in the North Non-Public A state finals, as well as a runner-up finish in the NBIL Division 1. On a team that scored 57.6 points a game, the senior averaged 19.3 and was the leading scorer in Bergen County with 561 total points, adding 6 assists and 5 steals per outing. The 5-foot-7 guard closed her four-year varsity career with 1,272 points, the most by a Lady Paladin since 1948, and she has a full scholarship to play at Division I Norfolk State.

Meanwhile, James Madison apparently has also added a new piece. On Sunday, WHSV's Damon Dillman reported that Boston College sophomore guard/forward Jasmine Gill will transfer to JMU. The 6-1 Gill appeared in all 32 of BC's games last season and averaged 6.5 points per contest.
