Creighton added a quality big man to its Class of 2018 recruiting class on Thursday night as big man Ian Steere pledged to the Bluejays.
The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Steere is coming off of a very solid spring in which he showed an ability to clean the glass to go along with an improved offensive skill level. Steere is the second commitment to come from Team Charlotte to Creighton in the last two classes as he joins guard Ty-Shon Alexander from the last class.
With a limited amount of quality big men in the Class of 2018 nationally, Creighton cashed in its Justin Patton-just-got-drafted-in-the-first-round card on the recruiting trail by landing a highly-coveted post player before the July live evaluation period even begins. Steere could turn into a quality Big East big man, and this commitment at this time now affords Creighton the ability to focus more of its attention on uncommitted targets over the next few weeks.
Steere joins three-star forward Christian Bishop in Creighton’s Class of 2018 recruiting haul.
