On Tuesday, CSU landed one of the top shooters in the Cleveland area.
Shawn Christian, a 6-foot shooting guard from Garfield Heights High School, gave a verbal commitment to Waters on Tuesday.
The news was first reported by Sonny Johnson's Twitter account:

Christian becomes CSU's first recruit in the class of 2017 and is expected to sign with the Vikings in November's early signing period.
The sharp-shooter averaged 13 points a game last year as a junior, but had his big breakout performance in last week's regional semifinals at CSU's Wolstein Center.
Christian scored a game-high 23-points - draining 5 of 7 shots from long range - lifting the Bulldogs to a 49-43 victory over Warren Harding High School in the regional semifinals.
He followed that up with a 10-point performance in the regional finals, including the game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer that sent the game into overtime.
In the overtime sessions, Christian hit two more big three-pointers, helping Garfield Heights advance to Columbus for its second straight state final four with a narrow 70-69 double OT win against St. Ignatius.
Christian is the third Garfield Heights alum to play for Waters, joining Daitwan Eppinger and Lewis.
