Just a few days after his high school teammate; Donovan Newby committed to Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Dante Maddox made his own commitment. On Friday afternoon Maddox posted a video to twitter announcing his commitment to Cal State Fullerton and head coach Dedrique Taylor. The senior had a stellar summer and became one of the more coveted mid-major recruits in the region. 

The senior picked the Titans over his other scholarship offers of Akron, Indiana State, Kent State, Loyola (MD), Missouri State, Southeast Missouri State, Toledo, UIC, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Wisconsin-Milwaukee. While at times overlooked playing besides his high school teammates Martice Mitchell and Keshawn Williams, Maddox has all the skills and ability to succeed playing in the Big West Conference. 

Maddox is a 6’2” guard of Bloom Township High School and the Young & Reckless program. The senior guard can truly score the basketball in bunches. He is a skilled shooter that can hit jumpers at a high rate from all over the court. He is aggressive on the opposite end playing tough defense with plenty of energy. Maddox had a breakout performance back in June at the Ridgewood Shootout leading Bloom to a championship against a very strong field. 

He will be joining a Cal State Fullerton team next year that is coming off of a 16-18 season. There could be good opportunity for Maddox to shine early on in his career as the Titans lost their two leading scorers from past season to graduation, both guards. Maddox marks the first commitment for Coach Taylor’s 2020 class.
