    Monmouth picked up one of the top players in New York City on Thursday when Ray Salnave, a 6-foot-2 guard out of perennial New York City public-school power Cardozo High School, committed to the school.

    Salnave, who led Cardozo to the SNY Invitational championship and was named the tournament MVP in January, was previously involved with Iona, Seton Hall and Rutgers, but Monmouth has appeared to be the heavy favorite for some time now.

    “Coach [King] Rice, I could feel myself playing under him,” Salnave told Josh Newman of the Asbury Park Press. “Every time he spoke, I learned something new about him. They gained my trust more and more every time I talked to them. It’s a family thing, and I’m just happy and excited. I can’t wait until next season.”

    CQPjDlzUAAAq7bqKentucky scored a huge commitment Thursday in the form of Wenyen Gabriel, the 6-foot-10, 195-pound forward from Wilbraham & Monson.

    Ranked the No. 4 power forward in the Class of 2016 by 247Sports.com, Gabriel chose the Cats over Duke, UConn, Maryland and Providence.

    “We [me and John Calipari] talk a lot,” Gabriel said in August. “He’s one of the few schools that would like me to play on the wing. Since he can bring in a lot of big guys, he can allow me to do that so that’s kind of appealing.”

    “He loves Coach Cal and Coach [Tony] Barbee,” Wilbraham & Monson coach Mike Mannix said Thursday after the commitment. “Their goals and vision all come together nicely. Kentucky just got a great one. He will make the university very proud in all he does
