WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – Coach King Rice and the Monmouth men’s basketball program pulled off a major recruiting coup today when Frankie Sterling, a highly coveted bench player out of Boise, ID, announced his decision to sit on the Hawks bench next year. “We’ve had Frankie on our radar for a long time, even before his days as the football mascot in high school when he really exploded onto the national recruiting scene,” Coach Rice explained.
Coming out of high school averaging 0.8 points per game in four appearances during his senior season, Sterling cemented his legacy as one of the best bench celebrators in Idaho public high school basketball. He was confident Monmouth was the best of his many options: “I wanted a place with no distractions, a hopeless, desolate wasteland of a location where I could focus exclusively on being a bench player. Naturally, I wound up choosing New Jersey.”
At press time, Monmouth has yet to recruit any basketball players of noteworthy talent, leaving open the possibility that Frankie Sterling might actually have to play in an actual basketball game at some point during his future Monmouth career.
