Wronkoski Signs With Louisiana
Regarded as a solid all-around player, Wronkoski averaged 13 points and seven rebounds per game last season as the Falcons advanced to the Class 2A state quarterfinals. He can play inside and outside and has the ability to shoot from the perimeter, drive to the basket and rebound against bigger opponents.
"He's a good player," Gauff said. "He has a great basketball I.Q. and a great sense for the game. He's very intelligent and an extremely versatile player who can play in the post and on the perimeter, where he will play in college. I expect the Cajuns to play him at the 2 and the 3."
According to Gauff, Wronkoski held offers from the Cajuns, Southeastern Louisiana and Samford. Tulane, Boston University, Davidson and UC-Irvine also expressed interest.
Gauff, who won back-to-back Class 2A state titles at STA in 2007 and '08 with current Cajuns point guard Raymone Andrews, said the versatile Wronkoski is a great fit for second-year Cajuns coach Bob Marlin.
"In a couple of years I think you're going to see a very, very good player after he gets to work in coach Marlin's program and do some of the things they want him to do year-round," Gauff said. "He has a lot of room for improvement as his body continues to fill out and he gains strength and maturity."
Earlier this year Wronkoski played for a loaded Louisiana Select AAU team in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) summer program. Louisiana Select, coached by former Cajuns assistant coach Johnny Simmons, also included four-star recruit Ricardo Gathers, Arkansas signee Michael Qualls and Tulane pledge Louis Dabney.
Wronkoski made seven starts and averaged 3.9 points, 1.7 rebounds and 18.5 minutes in 20 games as Louisiana Select earned a spot in the 24-team Nike Peach Jam tournament in South Carolina.
During Session 3 of the Nike EYBL in May in Los Angeles, Wronkoski had nine points in a 56-55 win over the Howard Pulley (Minn.) Panthers and eight points in a 78-65 loss to the Oakland (Calif.) Soldiers. He added eight points in a 62-61 loss to the Indy (Ind.) Spiece in July at the Nike Peach Jam tournament.
The Cajuns added their first 2012 signee last week in Scotlandville (La.) High guard Cleveland "Pancake" Thomas, the younger brother of current UL forward J.J. Thomas.
On Tuesday night Biloxi (Miss.) High coach Seber Windham said he had yet to hear whether senior forward Davon Ester planned to sign Wednesday, the final day of the NCAA's early signing period.
Ester took an official visit to Lafayette two weekends ago, but Windham said Ester's father is trying to convince him to wait until the spring to sign with a college program. Ester, who previously played at Dutchtown (La.) High, did not respond to a text message Tuesday night seeking a recruiting update.
