Stratford University and Coach Franklin Chatman have received a commitment from former Churchland High (VA) standout Jaelan Stagg. Stagg joins the Cardinals after having a successful high school career at Churchland where he averaged 17.5 ppg and was an All Conference selection. James McCombs of Recruit 757 says Jaelan "will shoot the lights out and has monster range". Coach Chatman agrees with this comment and says "while Jaelan is a great scorer, he also brings a tenacious defensive attitude. He will cause a lot of problems for the opposing guards." Jaelan will be reuniting with his former Churchland teammate DeAndre Demiel at Stratford, who committed last month.
The Cardinals begin play in the USCAA on November 3, 2017 in New York against defending USCAA Div 2 National Champion Berkeley College.
