Over the weekend, Dominique Pointer held the attention of Michigan fans as he took a weekend official visit. However, the Michigan native decided that he won't be returning home for college and became the fourth four-star prospect to commit to Steve Lavin and St. John's this fall.
An athletic 6-foot-5 small forward who was first noticed last year at Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy, Pointer was even better in the summer with The Family.
He's a slasher who gets to the rim, one of the country's top wing defenders and is clearly impressed with Lavin and St. John's.
"He likes it because of the small classrooms," said coach and mentor Carl Weaver. "And the pro staff and all the success that Coach Lavin had at UCLA."
Pointer joins a strong perimeter group that already includes D'Angelo Harrison, Jakarr Sampson and Maurice Harkless.
