Cleveland State lands first basketball commit in 2016 class

Richardson Maitre
Cleveland State landed its first commitment in the Class of 2016 as 6-foot-2 guard Richardson Maitre pledged to head coach Gary Waters on Monday, according to multiple media reports.

Maitre attends West Oaks Academy in Orlando.

The Montreal, Canada native is a bit under the radar in the class of 2016. He made a name for himself this summer playing for the Brookwood Elite AAU program where he shined at a number of top-tier showcases.

At the Adidas Gauntlet in Atlanta, Maitre averaged 13.9 points per game and had an 18:10 assist to turnover ratio.

Maitre also received offers from Middle Tennessee State, UTEP, Quinnipiac, Bradley, Sam Houston State, and New Mexico State.

He took an official visit to CSU on Sept. 11 and also visited UTEP and Bradley.

NorthPoleHoops.com ranks Maitre as the 17th best prospect in Canada's class of 2016.

He is the second Brookwood Elite alum to commit to the Vikings in the past two months. In August, Daniel Levitt, a freshmen guard from Montreal, announced he will walkon to the CSU program this fall.

The Vikings are also recruiting Brookwood Elite's 6-foot-5 wing Max Boursiquot, who holds offers from CSU, Albany, Binghampton, and Bryant.
