College basketball

Hens officially announce two recruits: University of Delaware men’s basketball head coach Martin Ingelsby has announced that high school standouts Ryan Daly and Jacob Cushing have signed with the Blue Hens and will join the program this fall.

Daly, a 6-4 guard from Havertown, Pa., was named the 2016 Philadelphia Catholic League MVP while playing at Archbishop Carroll High School, also Ingelsby’s alma mater. He averaged 21.7 points and seven rebounds per game during his senior year, while connecting on 65 three-pointers. The 2016 Daily Times Player of the Year, Daly led Archbishop Carroll to a 23-4 record, a berth in the Catholic League finals, and to the second round of the PIAA 3A tournament as a senior.

“Ryan was an extremely important piece to get onboard to start our 2016 recruiting class,” Ingelsby said. “He was the Philadelphia Catholic League Player of the Year this past season, and brings a toughness and winning pedigree to our basketball program. He has good size and an impressive all-around skill set that fits our needs and how we want to play. I love what he is going to bring to our basketball team.”

Cushing, a 6-8 forward from Naperville, Ill., was a second team Naperville Sun All-City pick as a senior at Neuqua Valley High School. He averaged 13 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, while shooting 48 percent from the field. As a junior Cushing earned All-DuPage Valley Conference honors, when he led the squad to a 28-5 record.

“Jacob is an athletic wing who will be a great fit in our system,” Ingelsby stated. “His shooting ability and basketball IQ were highly attractive to me as we added to the 2016 class. I like the versatility that he brings to our roster along with his size and skill. He has a very bright future in our program.”
