UDM Titans add to impressive 2010 men's hoops recruiting class

Adding to a recruiting class which already includes a pair of junior college All-Americans and a McDonald's All-American, the University of Detroit Mercy Titans signed Michigan's Class D Player of the Year, Evan Bruinsma to a National Letter of Intent on Thursday.

The 6-foot-7 forward led Muskegon Western Michigan Christian High School to three straight boys basketball state titles in Class D, and a soccer championship as a sophomore. Bruinsma scored more than 1,000 points in his career, averaging 21.6 points per game as a senior.

“He is a winner and a great student-athlete and you are always looking to add that kind of talent to your team. He has improved every year and took his game to a new level as a senior,” U-D coach Ray McCallum Sr. said in a release. “He is very versatile and can fill a few different rolls on our team. He will need to learn to play a bit closer to the basket, but he can also do a lot of everything and we are excited to have him join us."

Bruinsma joins McCallum's son, Birmingham Detroit Country Day standout Ray McCallum Jr., as incoming freshmen, while the Titans also added Juco All-Americans Nick Minnerath (Jackson Community College) and Chris Blake (Trinity Valley Community College.)
