Burchfield, who hails from Concord, N.C., has averaged 19.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.4 assists during his high school career. Shaver looks forward to utilizing Burchfield’s shooting ability.

“[Burchfield] has deep range from the perimeter, which will fit our system well. [Burchfield] has a knack for scoring,” Shaver told Tribe Athletics.

Malinowski, out of Chantilly, Va., was ranked as highly as No. 9 by Virginia Preps, shooting 52 percent from the field.  Rowley, from Purcellville, Va., rounds out the group, and will improve the team’s versatility. Shaver’s newest signings average 187 pounds and six feet, six inches.
