Top prospect selects Racers, adds to 2013 class

Following a weekend visit to Murray State, high school senior guard Demarcus Croaker of Orlando, Fla., reportedly committed to the Racers Sunday.

Croaker confirmed the commitment on Twitter.

“I’m committed to #racernation now,” he tweeted. “I just want to take this time to thank God for allowing me to make it this far. I’m now a Murray state racer and super excited #RacerNation,” Croaker tweeted.

The 6-foot-4-inch guard received numerous offers from schools all over the country, including Florida, Marquette, Miami and Central Michigan. It was rumored Croaker also drew interest from No. 1 ranked, Indiana.

Over the summer, Croaker narrowed his list down to three finalists: Murray State, Florida State and Texas.

Croaker has impressed scouts with his ability to drive to the basket and score at will, averaging 21 points per game during his junior year at Jones High School. He was given a four-star rating out of a possible five and was ranked as the 26th best point guard by Rivals.com.

With the graduation of senior guards Isaiah Canaan and Stacy Wilson at the end of the season, Croaker figures to play a large role in next year’s team.

Croaker joins guard Cameron Payne and forward Jarvis Williams in the Racers’ 2013 recruiting class.
