Basketball: St. Andrew's star Perkins commits to Owls

St. Andrew's shooting guard Xavier Perkins has committed to Florida Atlantic, giving the Owls an early start on the 2006 recruiting season.

The 6-foot-4 Perkins averaged 19.8 points per game last season when he led the Scots to a 25-4 record and a Class 2A Regional appearance.

Perkins said he was impressed by new Owls coach Matt Doherty and assistant coach Rex Walters, who were hired in April.

"Mr. Doherty has to be one of the best coaches around and has been around some great coaches," said Perkins, who is expected to be one of the top prospects in the area.

FAU has signed players in the early signing period only once before and this is the earliest the Owls have received a verbal commitment.

Perkins was recruited by former FAU coach Sidney Green, who was fired in March, but he became interested in the Owls after Doherty arrived.

I can't wait for hoops season!

That last sentence is classic. Sidney ran a great program! ::)
