SHREVEPORT—Centenary head men’s basketball coach Rob Flaska has announced the signing of three players to National Letters of Intent. Anthony Gatlin, Justin Glenn, and Tim Price have all committed to join the Gents roster for the 2007-08 season and will join a squad that loses only two players after this year’s schedule.

 

Gatlin, a 6’8” 180-pound guard/forward combo from Pearland, Texas, will come to Centenary from Pearland High School outside of Houston. He averaged 8.5 ppg., 5.0 rpg., and 2.5 bpg. during his junior season at Pearland.

 

“Anthony has unlimited potential and will end up being an all-conference performer at Centenary. He is long, athletic, and has the ability to score inside or out, even to the three-point line. He is also a 4.0 student,” said Flaska.

 

Glenn, a 6’8” 220-pound forward, preps at Union High School in Tulsa, Okla.

 

“Justin brings great skills with a deadly left-handed shooting touch,” said Flaska. “His offensive skills and athleticism will provide our team with immediate production as a freshman. Justin is also a 4.0 student and he plays for one of the top-ranked high schools in the 6A class in Oklahoma.”

 

A 6’11” 205-pound center, Price will call Centenary home after finishing his career at Klein High School in Spring, Texas, on the outskirts of Houston. He averaged 8.0 ppg., 6.7 rpg., and 3.5 bpg. last season for Klein.

 

“Tim brings us an inside defensive presence with his great shot-blocking ability. He will be an impact player for our program on the defensive side his soft shooting touch will benefit us as well. He has a tremendous upside and he is still growing,” said Flaska.

 

Flaska is very pleased with what will be his third recruiting class since taking over at Centenary stating, “This recruiting class brings extraordinary student-athletes to Centenary and this is a group that will help us get to the championship level. They are from winning high school programs, have been well coached, they are excellent in the classroom, and they bring us the talent we need to be a top-tier team in the Mid-Continent Conference.”

 

Flaska and the Gents tip-off the 2006-07 season on Saturday at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas, at 7 p.m.
