|Kyle Molock-6'2 Guard Dublin Coffman|
The past Monday Dublin Coffman senior guard Kyle Molock gave a verbal pledge to Phil Martelli and St. Joesph's University. As we reported a few weeks ago, Molock, since de-committing from Purdue, has been fielding offers from a number of mid-major programs. Although Molock did not list the Hawks as one of the schools showing interest when we talked to him, after returning from a visit to the Philadelphia area school earlier in the week, Molock felt that the A-10 school was the right fit.
I had a chance to speak with Molock's father, Karl, and he advised that "St Joe's was the first school involved early on, before Purdue. St. Joe's has always liked Kyle and they were the first school to call Kyle after he de-committed from Purdue. It meant a lot to Kyle and me as his father that St. Joe's stayed after us," stated the elder Molock.
The Philly area is familiar to the Molocks, "We are from Wilmington, Delaware, about 15 minutes outside of Philly," added Molock. "His [Kyle's] grandparents are there, we still have friends in Wilmington," Molock said. "Kyle also liked the size of the school; there are only about 5000 undergrad students. Coach [Martelli] lets his guards play and he loves Kyle," offered Molock. Kyle will join former Garfield Heights standout Carl "Tay Tay" Jones in the Hawk's back court next season. Congrats to Kyle and his family!
