Robert Morris Lands Commitment from 6-foot-8 JuCo F Matt Mayers



On Sunday evening, Andy Toole and his Robert Morris staff received some more positive news on the recruiting trail, as 6-foot-8 forward Matt Mayers committed to the Colonials.

Mayers played two seasons at Hutchinson Community College, greatly improving his game in his recently-finished sophomore season. This season, Mayers started every contest for the program, averaging 17.8 points per game on 59.6% shooting from the field. These strong numbers come a season after he only played 6.5 minutes per game during his freshman year. His stellar season not only earned him first-team all Jayhawk West Conference honors, but also the Most Valuable Player award for the division.

When asked to describe Mayers strengths, a national talent evaluator tells PSN, “[Mayers] can really rebound, [has] great touch around the rim. Works from inside out, unlike a lot of bigs these days.”

The 6-foot-8, 210 pound forward chose the Colonials over a final list that also included Tulsa and Illinois State, after being recruited by a handful of division one schools since finishing up his time at Hutchinson CC. Mayers is originally from Hastings-On-Hudson, New York, and played his high school ball at Scanlon.

With the addition of a strong body on the inside who already has college experience, Robert Morris is building its roster back up one by one as it gets closer to the season.
