LAFAYETTE – Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Men's Basketball coach Bob Marlin added to an already solid 2020-21 recruiting class on Tuesday when he announced the addition of four-star recruit Ty Harper signed a National Letter of Intent during the Early Signing Period.
 
Harper, a 6-foot-4 combo guard, was rated as the No. 6 overall recruit in the state of California and the No. 100-rated overall recruit nationally by ESPN. The native of Norcross, Ga., who was the No. 22-rated shooting guard in the country, joined Carencro's Joe Charles as signees for the 2020-21 season.
 
"We are excited about the addition of Ty Harper to the Ragin' Cajuns Basketball family," Marlin said. "His ability to affect winning in multiple ways will help our team. He is a humble guy who works extremely hard and has an intense passion for improvement. His speed and athleticism allow him to get downhill quickly and put pressure on the defense."
 
Harper, who averaged 15.5 points per game as a senior, helped Santa Clarita (Calif.) Christian to a 24-6 record, the 2020 CIF-Southern Sectional Division 2AA title and a No. 28 national ranking by Max Preps. Harper was named the Division 2AA Player of the Year and was a first-team All-Southern California and All-Area selection.
 
"Ty has done a tremendous job becoming a player who can score at all three levels," Marlin added. "His shot is a weapon that doesn't allow defenders to back off. We believe Ty will fit our style of play perfectly."

LAFAYETTE – Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Men's Basketball coach Bob Marlin didn't have to go far to ink his first member of the 2021 signing class as Carencro native Joe Charles signed a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.
 
Charles, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged 19 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals as a junior at nearby Carencro High School where he helped lead the Bears to the 2018 Class 4A state title under coach Christopher Kovatch.
 
"Joe is a young man that we identified early in the recruiting process and he made an early commitment to stay at home for college after his sophomore year at Carencro," Marlin said. "We love his versatility and how he impacts winning on both sides of the ball. We are excited to add Joe to our Ragin' Cajun family."
 
Charles, the No. 2 small forward in the state of Louisiana by PrepHoopsLA and the No. 7-ranked player overall, helped CHS to a 33-11 record in 2018 and 26-11 mark in 2019. He helped the Bears to the District 4-4A title and a state semifinal appearance in 2019, and was also named the district MVP while earning All-Metro and Class 4A All-State honors.
