Rider roster set; Tommy Pereira commits

With a verbal commitment from 6-foot-2 shooting guard Tommy Pereira, Rider's 2010-11 roster is in place.

Pereira, a 3-point specialist from Nottingham England, joins Danny Stewart, Anthony Myles and Virginia transfer Jeff Jones on the school's list of off-season additions.

Pereira, like rising senior Justin Robinson, is a product of the under-18 British national team. Outside shooting was a major weakness in 2009-10, and the Broncs' coaches view Pereira as a zone buster who can also help spell Robinson at point guard when needed.

Stewart, a 6-7 forward from Neumann Goretti High School in Philadelphia, signed a letter of intent last fall to play at Rider. Myles, a 6-4 guard from Dover, Del., has signed his letter, but the school has yet to receive it, meaning no formal announcement will come until early next week.

Jones, a 6-4 guard from Chester, Pa., will sit out next season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. The Broncs' 2010-11 roster will also include DeShawn Mitchell, a guard who sat out last season after transferring from UNLV.
