NEW ORLEANS - Tulane men's basketball coach Perry Clark announced Thursday that Sherrod Teasley has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to attend the school and compete for the Green Wave. He will join the team in the fall of 2000.
Teasley, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound, point guard from Notre Dame Academy in Middleburg, Va., averaged 13.0 points, 9.0 assists and 6.0 rebounds last season for coach Larry Cullinane. He is rated as the No. 30 point guard in the nation by FastBreak Recruiting service.
As a senior, he guided Notre Dame Academy to an 18-10 record as an independent and earned first team all-Lodoun County honors. He was also an honorable mention all-city pick by the Washington Post. As a junior, he averaged 16 points per game at Notre Dame Academy while playing the shooting guard position.
Teasley is a proven winner with outstanding leadership and passing abilities. He also attended St. John's Prospect Hall in Frederick, Md., while in high school and was the starting point guard on the school's 1998 National Championship squad. That team posted a 25-0 record and ended the year ranked No. 1 in the nation by USA Today.
Teasley is the first recruit to sign with Tulane this spring. He joins David Hawkins, Wayne Tinsley and George Brown, who signed with the Green Wave during the November signing period.
Clark and the Green Wave returns six players from last season's 20-11 squad that
participated in the NIT.
