Miami Dade College Head coach Chris Wade had a chance to touch base with JucoJunction today on two of his top players for the 2008 class.
Tyrone McNeal: (SO) 7-foot-0 (240) from Clover, SC. Tyrone averaged 12.5 ppg and 7 rebounds last season for MDC.
"Tyrone is an extremely skilled big man with great tools. He just needs to bring it every night," said Wade.
McNeal has had a lot of calls already heading into the summer with the likes of Nebraska, Indiana, LSU, UNC-Wilmington, Wichita State, Kansas State, Wyoming and Miami (FL). Tyrone will play this July at Kenn Littlefield's event in Jonesboro, GA and at Jerry Mullen's JUCO Camp in Tulsa, OK.
Steven Toyloy: (SO) 6-foot-10 (255) from West Palm Beach, FL.
"The rugged power forward does all the little things to impact games. Steven has improved his low post game since last season," said Wade.
Toyloy averaged 9.3 ppg and 12.1 rebounds last season. Indiana, Wichita State, LSU, Ole Miss, Kansas State and Wyoming have expressed interest in the power forward. Toyloy will join McNeal on the summer circuit at Littlefield's and Mullen's events.
