Mark Medley to Rider; Shawn Valentine to prep school
It remains true that Rider's recruiting class of 2011 includes two guards, and that one of them is Philadelphia point guard Eddie Mitchell.
The name of the second guard, though, has changed.
Mark Medley, a 6-3 shooting guard from Tatnall, Del., is Rider-bound. Medley, a second-team all-state selection last year, is the second Delaware player to commit to Rider in the past two years, joining Polytech High standout Anthony Myles.
Rider, though, will not immediately gain the services of Shawn Valentine.
The Broncs were thrilled to land Valentine last month and remain excited about his potential. But the 6-7 combo guard -- who chose Rider over Rutgers, La Salle and Temple -- will reclassify as a junior and play next year at the Phelps School in Malvern, Pa.
Rider, which opens the season Nov. 12 at UMass, has three scholarships left to give.
