In the state title game, the Weathers brothers . . .

“When you look at them, Michael is a backcourt player who plays the one and can play the two position,” Cooper continued. “He has athleticism and good size for the position. He’s quick with the ability to attack the rim. Marcus is extremely athletic with a good vertical jump to get off the floor and can also defend multiple positions. Both are good defenders, and I think we will become more athletic when they are on the court.
“I think one of the things about them that we’ve enjoyed is that they bring life to the room when they walk in,” Cooper added. “Their personalities are engaging and can permeate a room, which I think is a very good thing. They want to win, that’s what they are about. We’re excited to have them join our program and look forward to having them on board.”
“We’re really excited that Bruno Solomun will be joining our class,” said Cooper. “We’re getting another player from the North Carolina area, joining (rising junior forward) Logan McLane. This is a kid who, I think, will help us stretch the floor, is going to bring some size and some length to the forward position and who has played a lot of basketball. He needs to continue to get physically stronger, but I think once he gets here and gets acclimated to the surroundings and with the way we want to play and like to play, he’ll certainly be a great benefit to our roster. He has a pretty good offensive skill set and is another young man who can shoot the ball from the perimeter.”
