                           DINO	DOGAN		-		FOrWArD/CENTEr
                  14       Dino is a player that can do some stuff inside the paint, but also shoots it well from three. He
                           is a very talented player, who at 6’11 is one of the tallest players ever at The Citadel. With all
                           international guys it can take them a little longer to adapt to the American game, so you need to
                           be patient. I think Dino can make a great contribution to the team this year. If he really buys into
                           our development he has the chance to be a great Southern Conference player.

zACH	UrBANUS		-		GUArD
Zach will be asked to do a lot for us this season as a freshman. I think Zach is not only ready for
a great deal of responsibility but he craves it. Zach has a great feel for the game. He can shoot
the ball very well from three. Zach loves the game of basketball, he is a true gym rat, and it
                                                                                                         15
really shows in the way he plays.


JOHN	BrOWN		-		GUArD/FOrWArD
I am really excited about the energy and athleticism that John brings to our ball club. John has
a great nose for the ball, he is a good rebounder, and is able to make a lot of plays with his out-
standing effort. I think John has the chance to play a huge role for us this season. He is working
                                                                                                         20
hard at developing his skills and adapting to our offense. John has a great deal of potential, and
I am excited to see him develop.

CAMErON	WEllS		-		GUArD
Cameron is going to be an exciting player for our fans to watch play over the next 4 seasons.
He is quick, athletic, and can go from end to end with the ball as fast as anyone in our league.
Cameron is talented and also very unselfish in the way he plays. He also does a great job finding
                                                                                                         22
the open man. Cameron played for a great high School program in Houston (Bellaire) and we are




                                                                                                              2007-08 Outlook
counting on him to contribute heavily from day one.

AUSTIN	DAHN		-		FOrWArD
Austin is a big guard that we will put all over the floor in an attempt to take advantage of his size
and skill. He shoots the ball well, and has a very nice post up game also. His body is probably
the most college-ready out of all our freshman. He spent a postgraduate year at Fork Union Mili-
                                                                                                         24
tary Academy playing for legendary Fletcher Arritt. The year helped prepare him for the rigors
of Southern Conference basketball. Austin is a great kid, and a player that our fans will enjoy
watching compete for the Bulldogs.

PHIllIP	PANDAk		-		GUArD/FOrWArD
Phillip is a very mature freshman and he is really able to shoot the ball. Phillip also went to Fork
Union Military Academy so that prep year will help him physically and mentally this year. Phillip
needs to play for us on the wing, and knock down shots. I know he will be able to do this because
                                                                                                         30
he is a gym rat and has a great passion for the game. Phillip is a great kid and we are excited
about the contributions he can make here during his career.

DANIEl	EykyN		-		GUArD/FOrWArD
Daniel is a local guy, who brings a great level of competitiveness and physicality to our program.
Daniel is skilled and has the ability to shoot from the outside, but he is also crafty inside and has
the ability to finish and rebound. Our staff is thrilled that Daniel is a Bulldog and we believe he
                                                                                                         33
can do a lot on and off the court to take our program to a Championship level.


DEMETrIUS	NElSON		-		CENTEr
Demetrius has been working very hard to make this a memorable senior season. He has been
very dedicated to staying in-shape and keeping his skills sharp during the off-season. Demetrius
has the ability to be one of the best Centers in the league. He knows that his challenges are
                                                                                                         44
consistency and focus. I think with those areas in mind he had a great off-season of conditioning,
hopefully that will help him be more consistent. We are looking forward to Demetrius consistently
showing the flashes of greatness he has displayed us with the last 3 years.

MATT	ClArk		-		FOrWArD
Matt Clark is a very skilled Forward. His body is a work in progress, but I think Matt has the ability
to do some great things for us this year. Matt is committed to his player development and that is
going to really help us in the front court in the years to come. One thing I really like about Matt
                                                                                                         45
is I think he is a tremendous competitor.
