Duquesne formally announced Jim Ferry’s first recruiting class today, as reported earlier this month.

The notable addition here is Ovie Soko – a 6-8 transfer who will sit out next season and have just one year of eligibility left.

“I’m extremely excited about our first recruiting class,” said Ferry. “We were able to address some needs with quality kids from great families who have all competed in highly successful basketball programs.

“This group brings a good mix of talent, experience and maturity that should impact and benefit our program as we move forward.”
