HCC's Hart signs with Wichita State

Ejike Hart, the Hillsborough Community College forward who was a target of USF's recruiting efforts under Robert McCullum, signed with Wichita State on Wednesday.

Hart, a 6-foot-8 sophomore from Liberia, was one of the first recruits that USF coach Stan Heath met with after taking the Bulls job, but he was not a priority in the Bulls' recruiting efforts. After visiting Winthrop last weekend, he decided to stick with new Shockers coach Gregg Marshall, who had recruited him when he was at Winthrop.

Another HCC prospect, forward Milos Klimovic, met informally with Heath at USF on Friday, two days after he was released from his letter of intent at Houston. Klimovic does not have an offer from USF but is on their radar and could be an option if other forward targets don't work out for the Bulls.
