Rick Ray adds Memphis Central SG Andre Applewhite

Memphis Central Shooting Guard Andre Applewhite has signed with Mississippi State this afternoon, becoming the second signee of the Bulldog class since Coach Rick Ray took over last month. Applewhite joins Jacoby Davis, who signed earlier this week.

Andre chose Mississippi State over offers from Western Kentucky, College of Charleston, Missouri State, Southern Illinois, and Arkansas State.

Applewhite is a 3* (24/7) SG listed at 6'4" and 200 lbs, which would make him big enough to also play Small Forward if needed. Andre averaged 20 points per game last season at Central playing for his father, Andre Applewhite, Sr..

This seems to be another solid pickup for Coach Ray especially with the late jump he got on this signing period. Coach Ray has room to sign up to three more players this signing period, but may elect to save those scholarships for next season when he has the full year to recruit.

Here's a quite long highlight tape on 'Dre via Youtube. First shot of him at about :15 he looks JUST like Jarvis Varnado to me.
