St. Joseph’s started its 2015 recruiting efforts with a local commitment on Friday afternoon as three-star guard LaMarr Kimble pledged to stay home and play for the Hawks.
A 6-foot point guard from Neumann-Goretti High School and Team Final, Kimble played for two very reputable programs and gives St. Joseph’s a nice local addition to their backcourt.
Kimble announced his decision on Twitter and also mentioned that staying in Philadelphia meant a lot to him when making a decision.
The Hawks should be able to pair Kimble together with incoming-freshman guard Shavar Newkirk to form a nice duo of guards that can handle the ball.
Kimble is coming off of a really good July in which he tied for the Peach Jam lead in assists per game at 6.6 dimes per game. Kimble averaged 4.6 assists per game in 21 EYBL games this spring and summer to go along with 8.1 points and 3 rebounds a game.
