Coach Dorsey on Dylan Angel: I'm excited that Dylan has chosen to be a part of the Centenary family. He has a great work ethic and experience playing at a high level. His ability to hit the outside shot will make a tremendous impact for us offensively. Because of his long length and ability to defend, he will be able to play multiple positions and should be a huge asset for us as a freshman.

Coach Dorsey on Kaharri Carter: Kaharri will be a great addition to what we are trying to build at Centenary. He's an all-around talented player with extreme athleticism. His NCAA Division 1 experience will help him fit in perfectly to the style and pace that we want to play. In addition, he's a work horse that will make us very strong on the defensive end. Looking toward the future, It's exciting to know that we will have him a part of the program for the next two years!
Freshman / Guard

It is also a plus we were able to stay close to home and pick up a student-athlete from the state of Louisiana. I am looking forward to watching Raylon grow as a basketball and a person for the next four years.
