Winthrop gets two from Ohio


Winthrop landed verbal commitments from two guards over the weekend, multiple sources report.

Ohio products Josh Davenport (Cincinnati, Ohio/Moeller) and Keon Johnson (Mansfield, Ohio/Mansfield Senior) both pledged to the Eagles.

Johnson, a point guard, chose Winthrop over offers from Mid-American Conference schools. Davenport, a 2-guard, held offers from St. Bonaventure, Ohio, Elon and Akron. Both players are the first recruits for new head coach Pat Kelsey.
