New talent at Merritt

After successfully sending off his sophomore talents, Merritt College Coach Keenan McMiller is welcoming some new student-athletes to the Oakland Hills campus.

Here you go:

* 6-foot-3 Jalil Eppenger, Berkeley High, Stoneridge Prep

He's a former Alameda-Contra Costa All League performer

* 6-foot-0  Anthony Knight, El Camino High

Knight was a First Team All Peninsula Athletic League selection who can play both the point and two guard spots and McMiller calls him "a bigtime defender"

* 6-foot-6 Chris Patterson, Muhammad University of Islam

Patterson didn't play high school ball but participated with the Oakland Rebels during spring and summer -- "he comes ready to play every single day after school, he gets out in July and is really going to help us" according to McMiller

* 6-foot-4 Maceo Bell, McClymonds High

There is no better athlete -- Bell fits nicely as a wing.

* 6-foot-4 Delvon Nisby, Oakland High

Nisby offers more athleticism and potential

* 6-foot-2 Marcus Green, Bishop O'Dowd

A tough scrapper who was as Honorable Mention All-HAAL honoree.

* 6-foot-3 Willie Williams, McClymonds High

An Honorable Mention All-OAL -- if you want defense, he brings it

* 6-foot-1 Harrison Haynes, Palmdale High

A pass-first point from a solid team and program in southern California

* 6-foot-1 Wayne Tucker, Oakland Tech will be redshirting

McMiller added, "We won't be a great outside-shooting team but we'll have a lot of disciplined, high IQ players and we're really going to improve. We're definitely going to be tougher."
