New Orleans - Tulane head men's basketball coach Dave Dickerson announced today the addition of two players to the Green Wave men's basketball team with the signing of local product Kelth Cameron and Terrance Beasley. Both players are on campus and will be freshmen on the 2009-10 basketball team.
"We're excited to finish up our 2009-10 recruiting class with the addition of Kelth Cameron and Terrance Beasley," Dickerson said. "Kelth is a local player from East St. John High School where he put together a solid second half of his senior year and led his team to a district title, which was the first in school history, and he was a big part of it. He is a little bit behind offensively, but we really like his physicality and his ability to bang and rebound, which we need with the presence we've lost in the inside over the past three years. We'll give him a good look to see if he can help us as a freshman.
"With Terrance Beasley, we were very lucky to find a player of his caliber so late. His athleticism makes us one of the most athletic teams in our conference with the addition of the three of newcomers, along with our returners. This is the most athleticism we've had in the middle of our line-up since I've been here. Both Terrance and Kelth will compete for playing time."
A native of Pensacola, Fla., Beasley (6-6, 210) was three-year letterwinner for coach Bob Stinnett at Pensacola (Fla.) High School. He led his team to district and regional appearances and to the state playoffs during his prep career. During his senior campaign, Beasley averaged 17 points and nine rebounds per game and ranked as the No. 48 small forward by ESPN.com and was a three-star performer according to Rivals.com. He was named to the all-area first team and received all-state second team honors during his final prep season.
"We've lost a lot of good inside players over the last three years and we're trying to replenish that now and by adding Terrance and Kelth. Those guys are both 6-6, 6-7 players (respectively) and will play alongside Asim McQueen, David Booker, Jon Andersen and Kendall Timmons inside. We have assembled a lot of moving parts with our team this season," Dickerson said.
