McClure Calls it for Bentley
Kimball Union Academy post-graduate guard Cash McClure announced a verbal commitment to Bentley University on Thursday night, accepting the full scholarship offer from among a host of division II suitors.
McClure graduated from Maranacook High School in Maine last year after averaging 27 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and 5 steals per game.
He then joined the Middlesex Magic in time for the summer live period and quickly asserted himself as a valuable scorer in their backcourt rotation, avering in double figures for most of the month and helping them to a pair of championships and 13-2 overall record.
"Cash was a constant spark for our team on both ends of the floor and he saved his best offensive outbursts for some of our biggest games against high end opponents," said Middlesex Magic head coach and director Michael Crotty Jr. "He's excellent off the dribble and a great shooter off screens and catch. I've watched Northeast 10 basketball my whole life and firmly believe that Cash has an opportunity to be a star in that league. Coach Lawson and Bentley got a great player and leader."
At KUA, McClure is currently averaging 15 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals per game while running the show and playing under his uncle, head coach Cory McClure.
"Cash is a classic late-bloomer and he hasn't even come close to realizing his full potential yet," McClure said. "I've had a front row seat to Cash's basketball passion his entire life and second only to his mother and father, nobody is prouder of him than I am. While it sounds cliche, there is no finer young man than Cash McClure. He conducts himself in a first class manner in every aspect of his life."
"His goals were always quite simple, play for a great coach, at a great school, and not have his parents pay for college. So it goes without saying that he has achieved all of those by attending Bentley University and playing his college career for Jay Lawson."
