The Seattle Seahawks released this photo of some rookies on Saturday. Deane will be fighting to make it through rookie mini camp and receive an invite to training camp this summer where he will fight to make the 53 man roster.
Over the weekend we had several news worthy stories that made the cut in Monday mornings recap.
Camron Justice signs with WKU
On Friday it was announced that IUPUI grad transfer Camron Justice had signed with WKU (Per Evan Daniels).
This makes 3 Kentucky Mr. Basketball winners on the same team- Justice (2015), Williams (2016), Hollingsworth (2017).
Justice will provide shooting at the guard position for Western Kentucky next season. Now with Justice (35.2%), Hollingsworth (34.4%), and Savage (36.9%) as our best three point shooters for next season. I view WKU’s lineup looking something like this next season (if Bassey returns)-
WKU Recruit Curt Lewis Chooses EKU Over WKU, UAB, MTSU, JSU.
On Saturday morning WKU recruit Curt Lewis from Aspire Academy in Louisville, KY chose EKU. Last season Lewis averaged 32 ppg and 17 rpg last season. It was rumored that Lewis was leaning toward Western Kentucky until his visit to Jacksonville State earlier last week. Also, the commitments of Kenny Cooper and Camron Justice did not help WKU in landing Lewis. With that being said, I don’t believe Lewis was ever a priority for Rick Stansbury.
Mik’Quan Deane Gets Invited To The Seattle Seahawks Rookie Mini Camp
Shortly after the NFL draft former WKU TE Mik’Quan Deane was invited to participate in the Seattle Seahawks rookie mini camp this week. Last Season Deane tallied 44 receptions for 530 yards and 6 touchdowns.
