Following an NCAA Division II Sweet Sixteen appearance, the Ferris State men’s basketball team added two additional athletes to its 2011 recruiting class.
Forward Tyrin Wade and guard Drew Lehman will join the basketball team as freshman for the 2011-2012 season. The Bulldogs previously inked 6-10 center Jared Stolicker and 5-10 guard Dietrich Lever during the early signing period in November.
Wade, a 6-5 Class B All-State selection from Lansing Sexton high school, averaged 16.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per game as a senior. He led Lansing Sexton to its first a state title in more than 50 years.
Lehman is a 5-11 scorer from Toledo Central Catholic High School. As a senior, Lehman averaged 14 points, four rebounds and three assists per contest. He was named as a second team Ohio Division I All-District selection last season.
Ferris’ four-member recruiting class will help fill the void next season as the team loses National Player of the Year Justin Keenan, along with seniors Matt DeHart, Darien Gay and Lou Williams.
The 2010-11 season marked the Bulldogs’ most successful campaign since 2005 by earning a GLIAC North Division title and two NCAA Division II Tournament victories.
