Providence added another quality recruit on Friday as four-star Class of 2019 forward Greg Gantt pledged to the Friars.
The 6-foot-8 Gantt is a native of North Carolina who has ascended up the national rankings thanks to his two-way versatility and athleticism. Regarded as the No. 55 overall prospect on Rivals, Gantt gives the Friars another solid piece to work with as head coach Ed Cooley and his staff have done an admirable job of landing players over the last several classes.
With Gantt, Providence could have a multi-year, two-way forward who could develop into a really solid all-around player. Since the Friars have their potential backcourt of the future coming in this season in A.J. Reeves and David Duke, Gantt slides in nicely in the frontcourt. The additional Providence 2018 commitments of Kris Monroe and Jimmy Nichols at forward will also bolster the Providence frontcourt as well as the Friars are starting to develop solid positional depth among recent recruiting classes.
