Lyndonville, VT - Kyle Cary, a 6'5" forward from Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School in Ravena, NY, has committed to the Northern Vermont University-Lyndon men's basketball program for the Fall 2018 semester. Cary will major in Computer Information Systems:Information Technology.
Cary was a three-year varsity player at RCS, and averaged 7.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game for the Indians. He also played two seasons of AAU basketball with the Cap City Scrappers and one season with the Voorheesville Swish. He averaged 11.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game while competing at the 17U level with the Scrappers.
Hornet head coach David Pasiak remarked "Kyle is a true back to the basket post player who can score inside and who competes on the glass. He is a very physical player who plays with a lot of energy. Kyle adds some much needed size and interior scoring and rebounding ability to our frontcourt. I expect him to develop into a very good player at our level and I'm happy to have him join our program."
Scrappers' program director and 17U coach Bob Shields added "In the 2 years that I have coached Kyle he has always respected me and does what he's told on the court. His aggressiveness and physicality is hard to find in kids now a days.. He gets after it and always plays 110%! I am very happy that I got to coach him and give him the opportunity to play AAU with us. I'm very excited to see him grow as a player at the next level. You definitely have added a Scrapper to your roster!"
Cary joins Zach Falkenburg of Chittnango, NY, Luke Fredsell of Westmoreland, NY, Colby Bucknam of Brunswick, ME, Dylan Torello of Fort Pierce, FL, Philip Lafond of South Easton, MA, and Rian Hayman-Jones of St. Johnsbury, VT, in the Hornets' Fall 2018 recruiting class.
