Delaware commit delays enrollment

Coach Monte Ross and his Delaware Blue Hens have not been having the best luck this summer as far as player personnel goes.  A trio of players who were expected to be on the roster for this upcoming season will not suit up for the Blue Hens until the 2010-11 season.

First off they lost their most highly touted recruit back in July.  It was reported on that Devon Saddler would be prepping for a year at the Winchendon School in Massachusetts instead of playing this year for Delaware.  With his skill set he most likely would have competed for minutes immediately.

Then in August they lost their starting point guard Brian Johnson for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.  Brian averaged 10 points, 5 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game.  His leadership and steady point guard play will really be missed this season.

Now we have learned that yet another player will not be arriving at UD for the 2009-10 season.

After noticing that Keion Palmer was not listed on Delaware's 2009-10 roster we decided to reach out to him to determine what his situation was.

Keion informed us that he is still committed to the Blue Hens, but his enrollment will be delayed for a year as he felt he needed to mature a little before attending Delaware.  He is now attending Fishburne Military School in Virginia.

Losing these 3 players leaves Delaware with limited depth.  Coach Ross has rarely had a full roster of players since he took over as the head coach at UD.

The good news for Delaware is that they gain these 3 players for 2010-11 and do not graduate any players after this season.  Then Coach Ross should have a wealth of experience at his disposal as well as depth.
