Rider announces recruiting class

Rider basketball coach Kevin Baggett has added four players to next season’s roster, including two-time South Jersey Player of the Year Xavier Lundy.

Lundy, a 6-foot-6 forward out of Paulsboro High, won a pair of South Jersey Group I titles, helping the Red Raiders to a 57-4 record over the last two years.

He averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds in his senior season and 22 per game as a junior. For his career, Lundy finished with 2,135 points.

Joining Lundy is a trio of players from Florida — forward Khalil Thomas and guards Jimmie Taylor and Brandon Channer.

Thomas, a 6-foot-7 forward out of Lauderhill and Blanche Ely High, was a top-20 prospect in the state, according to

He picked up first team All-Broward County and second team All-State (7A) honors.
Taylor, a 6-foot-3 guard from Suwannee, averaged 24 points and 10 rebounds per game for Suwannee High and was a first team All-State (5A) selection. He was second in Class 5A in scoring.

Channer, also a 6-foot-3 guard from Tampa, played last season at Faith Baptist Christian in a post-grad year. Prior to that, he averaged 18.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per contest for Strawberry Crest High and was a second team All-State (6A) selection.

Baggett had to replace four players from the team that went 19-15 overall, finishing second in the MAAC with a 11-5 12-6 record and won a postseason game for the first time since 1957.

Jon Thompson and Dera Nd-Ezuma both graduated, Jamal Nwaniemeka transferred and Nurideen Lindsey withdrew from school to pursue professional opportunities.
