"We're extremely happy to have all three youngsters as they have great character and will really help our basketball program," says Williams.

Drew resides in Encino, Calif., and attends William Howard Taft High School in Woodland Hills where he plays for Coach Derrick Taylor.

"He's a true quarterback," says Williams. "He thinks of terms of what is good for his team ­ he passes first and he has the ability score. He makes really good decisions with the ball. I feel as his body matures, he will be a perfect fit for our quarterback position."

Davis resides in Richmond, Va., where he attends Benedictine High School and plays for Coach Sean McAloon.

"Ed is an aggressive rebounding basketball player who is exactly what coaches are looking for," says Williams. "He has the ability to score, but he understands the concept of team basketball and he is an outstanding passer, as well."

Zeller hails from Washington, Ind., where he plays for Coach Gene Miller at Washington High School.

"Tyler is a straight 'A' student who plays with a great deal of savvy," says Williams. "I think he is the finest running big man in the country and he has a tremendous shooting touch to go with that ability to run the floor."
