Albany Gets a Steal in Beagle

St. Thomas More and City Rocks big man Jonathan Beagle announced his commitment to Albany late Friday night, proving a huge boost of momentum for first year head coach Dwayne Killings. 

Beagle had a breakout spring and summer with the City Rocks, going from under-the-radar to landing scholarship offers from schools in both the ACC and Atlantic 10. 

Nevertheless, he still opted to stay close to home and chose the Great Danes. 

"I wanted to stay near home and I felt most comfortable with this staff," Beagle said. "After watching a practice and seeing how the staff got after guys, I knew it was the spot for me."

Beagle is a skilled big man with terrific hands, soft touch, and sneaky bounce around the rim. He's a versatile offensive threat who can score inside-and-out as well as facilitiate with his passing ability. 

"My vision is that I want to make it to the tournament and make a run," Beagle said. "I think it's possible, watching the staff coach and seeing how much talent is there. That's always been a dream of mine." 

Beagle recently ranked the third best 2022 prospect in the state of Connecticut and 11th best in New England.
