Rihards Kuksiks, one of true sleepers in the Class of 2007, signed papers with Herb Sendek's crew…
Devils Eyeing Latvia-Born Guard
Goporo said that the guard came to the U.S. to attend the school to follow in the footsteps of his cousin, who also attended Florida Air Academy (a boarding school in Melbourne, Fla.) a few years back. There was the natural normal adjustment period when he first got here, but judging not only but his play but also by his 4.0 GPA, suffice to say that the player's learning curve is a thing of the past.
"He's a typical European player," Goporo commented. "He's a great 3-point shooter that understands the game. He's a great player and a great kid." Kuksiks helped his school capture the Florida 3A championship this past spring.
It seems as if Kuksiks has narrowed down his list of schools to Virginia Tech, who he already visited, ASU and St. John's who he will trip to on Nov. 3rd. "After he makes all his visits, he will make his decision," said Goporo who added that his player does plan to sign in November.
