A Buc Forever: Here's the official release. http://www.whitworthpirates.com/sports/mbkb/2014-15/releases/20140730eufji7
Looks like the guys you said plus Derek Isaak, a RS Soph. transfer from NNU where he averaged 8.2 ppg and made nearly 42% from behind the arc. He reminds me a lot of someone Hayford would have recruited: small school, state POY...plus he scored 44 points in the state championship. The kid can shoot. The last guy from ACH who came to Whitworth to play basketball worked out pretty well (Nate Dunham, who was the 1996 NCIC Player of the Year and a First Team NAIA Division II All-American).
I couldn't find a highlight package on him, but here is the state championship when he scored 44 points (he's wearing #22 for the white team). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dME5C4aaw3I
Obviously I hope Whitworth continues the dominance, but this will be an interesting year for Logie since it will be his first without Hayford recruits. I don't think he has the talent that Hayford amassed, but we will see.
