New talent at Merritt
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."
