On the recruiting trail, Steve Alford has always been willing to return to his Indiana roots.
He and his staff at New Mexico did exactly that on Saturday scoring a commitment from Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor sophomore Troy Spears.
Playing in the shadow of five-star senior Kevin Ferrell, Spears hasn't yet had a chance to assert himself as a prospect on the high school level.
However, he has shown that he is a fine shooter, has a long frame to grow into and that he should be able to run either the point or slide over and play the two before it's all said and done.
A member of the Indiana Elite summer program, Spears is the Lobos first commitment from the class of 2014.
