Wayne’s Markus Crider is looking at Illinois, PennState, Northwestern, VCU, Northern Illinois, and Miami, OH among others.

According to sources, Markus Crider (6’6/2011) of Huber Heights Wayne
has opened his recruitment back up. Crider committed to Providence back
in August, but with the recently release of former head coach Keno
Davis the Wayne senior has decided the Friars may not be the right fit.


According to sources, Markus Crider (6’6/2011) of Huber Heights Wayne
has opened his recruitment back up. Crider committed to Providence back

Davis the Wayne senior has decided the Friars may not be the right fit.

“We had a conference call on Saturday with the new head coach (Ed
Cooley) and Markus (Crider) didn’t really feel comfortable with the
whole situation,” said Wayne head coach Travis Trice Sr. “He didn’t like
the direction he was feeling from Coach Cooley. He was really open with
us and we certainly respect that.”

Trice said the phone has been ringing off the hook with the likes of
Illinois, PennState, Northwestern, VCU, Northern Illinois, and Miami, OH
among others.

“We are going to sit down again and see how things progress,” Trice
explained. “We have so many coaches trying to get over here in the next
couple days, so we are doing two-a-days in the morning and after
school.”

Crider is still considering Providence, but isn’t keen on red
shirting or going the prep school route which is what Cooley suggested.

“I don’t think Coach Cooley has been able to get out too much with
everything that has been going on, but Markus didn’t think he had a good
feel of who he was,” Trice said. “Providence is going to lose a couple
recruits, but they seemed okay with that.”

Crider was the MVP of the North/South game last night at Capital
University scoring 24 points in 20 minutes of play. He averaged 14
points, 10.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game for the 22-2 Warriors
this past season.
