Nerijus Anglickis Rider-bound
The Broncs got a verbal commitment from 7-foot-1 center Nerijus Anglickis, from Lithuania via the Canarias Basketball Academy. He'll be the tallest player to play for Tommy Dempsey in Lawrenceville.
Anglickis is the Broncs' third verbal commitment of the class, joining guards Eddie Mitchell and Mark Medley. Rider also has a 2012 commitment from Shawn Valentine, a guard who reclassified as a junior and is spending two years at the Phelps School in Malvern, Pa.
Rider has two more available scholarships.
Anglickis is the second player in as many years to join the Broncs from the Canary Islands academy, which also produced freshman shooting guard Tommy Pereira.
