Dynamic 2018 signing class for Lancers men’s basketball team

Longwood University men’s basketball won recruiting battles for three high school seniors, who signed their National Letters of Intent to play for the Lancers beginning in 2018-19, fifth-year Lancers Head Coach Jayson Gee announced Wednesday.

That 2018 signing class features the high school trio of 6-foot-2-inch, 160-pound combo guard Josiah Jeffers (Burlington, North Carolina/The Burlington School), 6-foot-6-inch, 200-pound swingman Darryl “DJ” Myers (Raleigh, North Carolina/Hargrave Military Academy) and 6-foot-6-inch, 210-pound swingman Jaron Williams (Rock Hill, South Carolina/York Preparatory). They comprise Gee’s fifth recruiting class with the Lancers.

“Every year we’re able to bring in a higher and higher caliber of player to Longwood,” Gee said. “Josiah, DJ and Jaron continue that trend and make up a recruiting class that will provide a solid foundation for our program for years to come. We beat a number of quality Division I programs to get these young men to Longwood. Their signings are an indication of where our program is and, more importantly, where we’re headed.”
