Coach Coen and Northeastern have picked up their first commitment for the 2010 class.

They have received a verbal commitment from Alex Bates out of Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt Maryland.

Alex is 6-8 lefty forward who rebounds well and can score on hook shots out of the post.  He runs the floor well and defensively he is a shot blocking threat.

We caught up with Alex to ask him a couple questions about his commitment.

Recruit Recon: What made Northeastern seem like the right place for you?

Alex Bates: It seemed like the right place because I really felt comfortable with the coaches and players on my visit. I like the way they run their program and its also a great academic school.

Recruit Recon: When it came down to your final decision, what other schools were you considering?

Alex Bates: I was also considering Iona and Boston University.

Recruit Recon: Which schools did you have offers from?

Alex Bates: I had offers from UMBC, LIU, Central Connecticut St. ,Fairfield, Howard, NC A&T, St. Francis, Navy, St. Bonaventure, Iona, Boston U. and Stony Brook.

Recruit Recon: Did you take any unofficial or official visits?

Alex Bates: I took unofficials to LIU, UMBC, Central Connecticut St., Fairfield, Northeastern, Boston U. and Iona, and officials to Iona and Northeastern.

Recruit Recon:
What did you do on your visit to Northeastern?

Alex Bates: On the visit I mostly chilled with the players, watched practice and played pickup with them, toured the campus, and just had a great time.
