The University of Hawaii men’s basketball team has landed a nice new recruit for the 2012-1013 basketball season. High senior center Caleb Dressler out of Vancouver, Washington has given an oral commitment the Hawaii.
The 6-foot-10, 240-pound senior will sign a national letter of intent during the early signing period starting November 9th. He offered his oral commitment to coach Gib Arnold on his official visit to UH after seeing a Rainbow Warriors practice and the Ohana Hoopfest at the Stan Sheriff Center on Friday.
There are two scholarships available for the 2012-2013 basketball year for UH, and it looks like Dressler will represent one of them. Dressler is a lefty, who is most comfortable with his back to the basket. He averaged 17 points, 14.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game as a junior for Evergreen. Power forward and center are positions of need for UH.
He chose UH over two other final options, Portland State and Montana State. He had previously visited both. UH desperately needs a good big man, so hopefully Dressler is part of the future here at Hawaii.
