Recruits at Rider Midnight MAACness

In addition to getting fans fired up about the upcoming season, midnight madness festivities across the country serve as an extremely efficient recruiting tool.

Rider's Midnight MAACness certainly fits that mold -- so much so that Justin Robinson bluntly told me today: "It's pretty much why I came here."

With that in mind, below is a list of recruits who are at Alumni Gym for tonight's festivities. The Broncs have verbal commitments from two of the players -- point guard Eddie Mitchell and forward Mark Medley -- for the 2011-12 season, and from guard Shawn Valentine for the 2012-13 season.

In attendance tonight are: Malik Garner of Chestnut Hill Academy; Marquis Marshall of Reading Central Catholic; Medley; Mitchell; Deon Jones of the Sanford School (younger brother of Rider guard Jeff Jones); Derrick Stewart of Neuman-Goretti High in Philadelphia (Danny Stewart's brother); Valentine; Andre Horne of Life Center Academy in Burlington Twp. Aaron Morgan of Council Rock North High in Bucks County; Brendan Kilpatrick of Malvern Prep; Ryan Arcidacono of Neshaminy High; Dominic Hoffman of Gil St. Bernard; Alex Mitola of Gil St. Bernard; and Grant Fiorentinos of the Hun School.

Fiorentinos is on an official visit, while the other non-committed players are on unofficial visits.
