Noriega also drew interest from Butler and Washington State. Noriega had several scholarship offers, including from mid-majors, but Allen wouldn't specify which schools tendered offers."USF is getting a quality person and a great shooter," Allen said. "I think he's one of the best shooters in the state, a great 3-point shooter. He's a kid that can space the floor for them, especially with the zones they'll face in the Big East. He can create a lot of opportunities for others."He's kind of old school. He works on his game by himself, he's a great individual."In only three seasons, Noriega already set the school's career scoring record with 1,282 points.Noriega was a Class 5A third-team all-state selection and named to the Charlotte Sun-Herald's all-area first-team."This is a great opportunity for Shaun," Allen said. "There's a lot of great things and Shaun brings a different dimension, a big-time outside shooting threat. He felt comfortable with Coach [stan] Heath."He also liked USF from a location standpoint. He thought it was a good situation to be part of that building process."http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/apr/23/noriega-commits-usf/?sports-colleges-bulls Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
