JMU verbal commit earns raves from ESPN

Looks like the recruiting staff at JMU has uncovered another gem. At least that's how ESPN's Mark Lewis is calling it after watching Class of 2011 verbal commit Achiri Ade perform during last week's USA Invitational at Penn State:

When a player is as eye catching as this 6-foot forward from Baltimore, Md., and you're still tempted to say she's just scratching the surface, great things are on the horizon. Ade is impressive both physically and in her playing performance. She utilizes her size, strength and explosiveness to make plays that might have a rough edge to them now but will suit her well at the next level. Her first step covers a lot of ground and created a lot of opportunities for her off the drive. Inside she got off the floor both on her shot as well as her rebounding efforts. The key words in describing her game are effort and attack. On either end of the floor she's relentless and refuses to be outworked. There are fundamental skills that need refinement but the potential is limitless and should keep the folks at James Madison smiling.
