D.J. Balentine to Evansville

The 6'1'' Point Guard from Kokomo H.S. has made his verbal commitment to the University of Evansville. Balentine is a strong guard who has a great pull up jump shot as well as the ability to get to the basket off the dribble. He is a proven winner, leading Kokomo to the Class 4A State Championship game this past season.

I really liked watching him play this summer for his Eric Gordon Central Stars AAU team. Balentine should be able to make an impact right away for Coach Simmons and the Purple Aces. He chose Evansville over Indiana State and Missouri State.

Last evening when I heard that he was going to announce his decision today I figured that it almost had to be UE. He was set to make official visit to ISU and Missouri State later this month, and had just visited UE last weekend. So I thought that he must have really enjoyed his visit and decided that he was ready to make a decision.

Best of luck to D.J. Balentine in his senior year and as he continues his career at Evansville.
