It looks like LIU Brooklyn has added another player to the fold for the 2013-14 season. On Thursday evening, recruiting guru Alex Kline tweeted the following:
Iverson Fleming is a 6’1″ guard from North Brunswick High School in New Jersey. He originally committed to Hofstra over LIU back in December but de-committed after Hofstra head coach Mo Cassara was fired back on March 22nd.
According to nj.com, Fleming finished his senior HS season with a 22.4 ppg average in 27 games played. He finished with the 15th-best ppg average of all NJ boys players. He twice scored a season-high 33 points and scored over 30 points in four games. He scored 20+ points in 22 of 27 games.
Fleming is one of the few high schools players who DOESN’T have a highlight reel on YouTube but there are highlights of games he has played this season for North Brunswick HS. Here are two game highlights from this season (Fleming’s jersey number is #3, 1st video is on home team, 2nd video he is on road team):
The video shows he is obviously a point guard with good quickness and ability to get to the basket on drives. He can make the three (60 3-pointers made last season) and he looks to pass the ball to his teammates. He looks to be very comfortable handling the ball and looks pretty long for a 6’1″ guard. One potential negative is that he appears rather thin but it could just be how he looks in the videos. He definitely looks like a player who should have no problems playing in the high-tempo LIU offense.
Once the signing of Fleming becomes official, LIU Brooklyn will still have two more scholarships available. Fleming will join Nura Zanna and Chris Carter who signed National Letters of Intent back in November.
