BALTIMORE, Md. — Morgan State has added to its 2017 recruiting class with the signing of LaPri McCray-Pace.
MSU head coach Todd Bozeman announced the addition of the Conwell-Egan Catholic High School guard on Thursday.
“LaPri is a great addition to the program,” Bozeman said. “He’s a versatile player with size and strength. He can play inside and outside, and can guard inside and out as well with physicality. “We are extremely excited to add him to our family.”
Last season, Pace earned 2016 Bucks County Courier Times Player of the Year. He was also selected to the PA Sports Writers’ All-State second team and earned first-team All-League during his senior season at Conwell-Egan HS.
Pace was a four-year starter for an Eagles team that won back-to-back District 12 Class AA championships (2014-15), captured a state title in 2015 and went as far as the state quarterfinals in 2016.
