Burguillos signs with Georgia State

Denison Burguillos, a 6-9 power forward, signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Georgia State earlier today. Burguillos committed several weeks ago.

Burguillos, a native of Valencia, Venezuela, averaged 5.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and shot 43.6 percent from the field last season at Casper (Wyoming) College.

“Denison is the perfect type of player for our system,” GSU coach Ron Hunter said in a statement. “He is a lefty who can play in the post and shoot the 20-foot jump shot. He really developed at the junior college level, adding about 40 pounds to his frame and has shown the ability to work hard both on and off the court.

“There was an instant connection for us when we started to recruit Denison. I think he is going to surprise a lot of people on the court for his rebounding ability and defensive prowess.”

Burguillos played in 30 games for the Thunderbirds, swiping 12 steals, blocking 14 shots and dishing out 14 assists. The team often played 11 players during each game, with none of the players dominating the minutes.

Burguillos will add depth to a front court that lost center Eric Buckner, and forwards Josh Micheaux and Brandon McGee to graduation.

Welcome officially Denny!

Curtis Washington would be the last. I’d imagine his NLI will be signed very soon.

Washington will be the last I believe. Once it’s officially in, I’ll do a roster analysis thingy on the blog (I work with words)

@Concrete Cats, the joke is on you!! ODU sold out their stadium every game. If you and your friends would have packed the dome we would be in CUSA. We didn’t and therefore, it’s moot. I would suggest you do three things,
1. Be happy we are FBS (i.e. GaSo would trade w/ us in a minute).
2. Buy your freaking tickets and for all your neighbors
3. Get a life

Just wondering, could we add more scholarship so we can attract additional talents to our team?

Any idea?
