Staying close to home can be a burden for some players who are looking to get away and start anew or it can be a blessing as James Scales (Cherokee) thinks that it is.
Scales, who balled this summer with the Tennessee Travelers, ended his recruitment early and will attend King College in the fall.
King College is coached by legendary Tennessee coaching icon George Pitts and plays its hoops in the Conference of the Carolinas in NCAA DII.
The Tornado love to play at a fast pace and press the ball which will be a perfect fit for the tough minded Scales.
With his decision in the rearview mirror, Scales can now concentrate on getting his squad to make a deep run in the playoffs and bring home some gold for the folks at Cherokee.
