Providence head coach Keno Davis made the trip back to his Midwest roots, and on Monday he locked down the commitment from Duke Mondy. Mondy is a native of the state of Michigan, and with his commitment became the second member of the Friar's 2009 class.
Because of a transfer that forced him to sit out all of his sophomore season, Mondy was someone that slipped slightly under the radar at times, but the 6-foot-3 combo guard didn't fall past Davis and Providence.
Michigan Mustangs coach Mike Faletti confirmed the commitment to Rivals.com saying, "Yes, Duke committed to Providence last night."
Mondy is a solid athlete who is best known for his ability to shoot the ball from long distance. In fact, Mondy might be one of the best three point shooters in the entire state.
Aside from the interest from Providence, Mondy had an offer from Central Michigan, and was also receiving interest from Drake, Western Michigan, Ohio, and Oakland.
Mondy now joins Antoine Allen as commitments in Davis' first class as the head man at Providence.
