The Tulane men's basketball team picked up a commitment on Saturday from 6-foot-guard Connor Crabtree of Chatham (Virginia) Hargrave Military Academy.
Crabtree, who signed with UNC-Ashville in November of 2016, never enrolled there, electing to spend a post-graduate year at Hargrave Military Academy while re-opening his recruitment. He took an official visit to Tulane this past fall, had offers from Ohio, William & Mary and Wofford and recently received interest from Virginia, Butler and Marquette.
"I am confident in the plan they have for not only as a player but as a student," Crabtree wrote on twitter as he announced his commitment to Tulane. "I would like to thank everyone who has supported me along the way! New Orleans will be my home for the next four years!"
Hargrave Military Academy is 20-3 this season. Crabtree scored 24 and 20 points in back-to-back games during a tournament in December.
Crabtree graduated from Orange High in Hillsborough, North Carolina in the spring of 2017. He was named his district's player of the year as a senior and had a cumulative GPA of 4.1.
Crabtree joins Moses Wood, a 6-foot-6 forward from Reno (Nevada) Galena, as Tulane newcomers for 2018-19. Wood signed in November during the early signing period. Crabtree cannot sign until April 11, the first day of the regular signing period.
