Georgia State inks Bridgton (Maine) forward
By Brendan Hall
Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter announced the signing of Bridgton Academy (Maine) post-graduate forward Markus Crider on Monday.
Crider originally signed with Providence in 2011 as a senior at Wayne (Ohio) High, but opted to open his recruitment and spend a post-graduate year at Bridgton, where he averaged a double-double (20 points and 10 rebounds).
"I am very excited to be adding a player of Markus' talent to our team," Hunter said in a press release. "He will be a great addition to our wings. I am also excited that he is from my hometown of Dayton, which has produced many talented basketball players over the years."
Crider held an offer from Central Michigan and interest from George Mason and St. Bonaventure.
