PG Austin Waddoups from American Fork has signed with Southern Utah after getting a scholarship offer on May 6. Idaho State also offered him a scholarship. The Bengals offered on May 4. As far as I can tell, it is the first recruit for SUU.
"It feels great - it feels like a huge stress relief," he said. "I kinda knew it was gonna be like this. A lot of people have told me I'm too small to play Division I ball. I wanted to be patient."However, he will not be helping SUU this year. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Waddoups will go on his LDS Mission starting this July, and will join the team for 2014. I believe Waddoups is the Thunderbirds' first recruit this year.
And waiting for something good worked out for Waddoups, who helped lead American Fork to a share of the Region 4 title this past season. He was the second-leading scorer on the Cavemen, which also boasted Utah State signees Quincy Bair and Marcel Davis.
