The signing of Jordan Pierce, a 7-0 center from Scotch Plains, N.J., was announced by Union Catholic High School coach Jim Reagan.
Of Pierce, Miller said, “Jordan brings the one element that is so hard to get, which is great size. At 7-foot and 275 pounds he is going to fill a void we don’t have, but beyond that his upside is super-high. He has tremendous work ethic and is always in the gym. He continues to get better and better. He has a chance to really impact the rim on both ends with how we play. His mobility and touch on offense will allow us to throw the ball low and early, but defensively protecting the rim and rebounding he can be a force. Off the court and in the classroom he will be as engaging of a student-athlete as we have had here at UD. He and his family love how passionate the community is towards our program. They love the fit academically and socially, most importantly the love the close, tight-knit feel on our campus.”
