Nevada Basketball Inks Two Recruits

USA TODAY Sports

Two recruits have signed National Letters of Intent to play for the Wolf Pack starting in the 2014-2015 season.

Nevada Wolf Pack head basketball coach David Carter was busy on the recruiting trail this summer for two big reasons. One, he must replace departing senior point guard Deonte Burton. Second, he must add depth to a young and unproven front court.

On Tuesday coach Carter had two players, who had already committed to playing for the Wolf Pack, sign their National Letters of Intent making their decision final. Those two players will fill Carter's big needs for next season.

The first signee, Eric Cooper Jr., is a 6' 4" point guard who will look to fill the void Deonte Burton will be leaving. Cooper Jr. is currently attending the IMG Academy, a prep school in Florida and through two games is averaging 15 points and 4 assists a game. Coach Carter has said Cooper is "an excellent shooter and playmaker." Cooper Jr. will have four years of eligibility for the Wolf Pack.

The second signee is Kaileb Rodriguez, a 6' 9" forward who last season spent the year at the Univeristy of California and redshirted. Rodriquez is currently working on his game at Sheridan Community College and will come to Nevada with three years of eligibility. According to coach Carter, Rodriguez is "a versatile player with the ability to score inside and outside."
