John Staley Signs with NKU

Eagles fans will not have too far to travel to watch basketball standout John Staley compete at the collegiate level one year from now.

After verbally committing to Northern Kentucky University in September, the CJ senior made it official on Thursday, Nov. 10, signing his National Letter of Intent to join the Norse next season.

“It feels great to sign with NKU,” Staley said. “I have played basketball all my life because I love the game, so it’s just a bonus to be able play for four more years and get my college education.”

Long Signs to Play Basketball at Vandy

Less than 16 hours into the official opening of the high school signing period Wednesday, Nov. 9, Chaminade Julienne senior Raytea Long inked her National Letter of Intent to play basketball for the Commodores of Vanderbilt University.

As part of her commitment, Long will receive a full athletic grant to cover all tuition costs at the university located in Tennessee’s capital city, where she plans to study chemical engineering.

“Vanderbilt was just a perfect fit for me. The location, the academics, and the basketball program all felt right,” Long said.
