Mike Rhoades and the Rams picked up a commitment from class of 2018 combo guard KeShawn Curry on Monday. From Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville, Florida, Curry is somewhat of an under-the-radar commit. His NCSA recruiting profile notes that he averaged 15.0 points per game while shooting 50% from the floor. Also on his profile, Curry notes that his “main thing is not scoring” but instead, “it is [to] defend and rebound.” That sounds like a true VCU Ram if I’ve ever heard one.

With the recent commitment of P.J. Byrd and now the addition of KeShawn Curry, it’s clear that VCU will not lack backcourt depth in the 2018-19 season. Though Jonathan Williams will graduate after this year, Rice transfer Marcus Evans will be eligible, and Byrd and Curry can come off the bench as freshmen. Not to mention, the Rams have a myriad of other shooting guards and wings at their disposal.
Credit Mike Rhoades on securing yet another commitment. Whether it be adding transfers to this program or getting freshmen to hop onboard, he’s been pretty darn good without even coaching a single game.
