VU Trailblazers ink Dre Dentmond as first recruit for 2014-15 season

The first official member of the 2014-15 recruiting class for the Vincennes University Men’s Basketball Team is 6-7, 210-pound power forward Dre Dentmond of Lansing, MI, who brings to VU a lengthy high school hoops pedigree and potential just as prominent.
Dentmond will be counted on to help fill the Trailblazers’ interior void created by sophomore forward Willie Wiley moving on to the University of Evansville.
