Making their commitments to MU official, David Cubillan and Lazar Hayward inked their LOIs, MU reported today:
Head coach Tom Crean announced the signing of Lazar Hayward (Buffalo, N.Y.) and David Cubillan (DA-Veed Coob-E-Yan) (Mara Caibo, Venezuela) to national letters of intent today. Hayward and Cubillan will enroll at the university beginning in the fall of 2006.
Hayward is a shooter, expected to come in and take over some of slack that will be created when Steve Novak graduates after this season. Cubillan will provide much-needed support in the backcourt at the PG spot. Both players were featured in an earlier Cracked Sidewalks report.
MU has one more scholarship to give, after losing seven-footer Chas McFarland to Wake Forest.
