New Mexico scores in 2014

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.
