Spartans Get Another NC Player

According to recruiting analyst Evan Daniels (and multiple other outlets now) 2013 PG Diante Baldwin (6'-0" High Point NC/High Point Christian Academy) has became the third in-state player to agree to play for UNCG next season. Baldwin picked UNCG over App State, Winthrop, UNC-Asheville and Wofford.

- Baldwin is a two star rated by player ESPN Recruiting and is ranked as the #24 player in the state.

- Basketball Elite listed Baldwin as the #6 PG in the state of NC. The website also posted this about Diante after a local summer tournament ...

Quick/strong guard who can get to the rim and finish with a variety of moves. Highlight reel maker with the ball on a string- quick crossover dribble move. Athletic. Good body control in the air.
- The recruiting blog Phenom Hoop Report posted several evaluations of Baldwin this past fall.

Baldwin has “sneaky” athleticism and has exceptional ball handling and passing skills. He sees the floor really well. Baldwin does have good strength and athleticism and even had a few nice dunks in transition. Overall, Baldwin is a very active PG that has good fundamentals and basketball IQ.
- Baldwin participated in Dave Telep's Carolina Challenge.

-Now a couple of videos.

- Also, here is a link to another video from this summer's Peach Jam.

Welcome to the Spartans, Diante !!!
