Previous Installments: 2004 Class
With a multitude of scholarships available because the transfer train was still rolling at the time, the staff brought in a 6 man recruiting class in 2005.
- Jamelle Cornley (Columbus, OH) - Undersized (only knock), but an absolute warrior. Tremendous leader, who fought through so many injuries and setbacks. Not really much more you can say. Too bad he was only 6’4″, but then again he probably wouldn’t have been a Lion if he was taller.
Career – 122 GP (110 GS) 33.2 MPG 12.9 PPG 6.2 RPG
Grade – A-
Signing Period – Fall 2004
- David ‘Mooch’ Jackson (Gaithersburg, MD) - Junior College transfer, who chose PSU over Auburn. Mooch had a decent stint here, but nothing special. He was brought in as a combo guard at a time where PSU was desperate for a playmaker at PG. He started 51 games here but wasn’t an impact player, proving that he was a Big Ten bench player at best.
Career – 60 GP (51 GS) 27.0 MPG 6.7 PPG 2.6 APG 3.1 RPG
Grade – C
Signing Period – Spring 2005
- Maxwell Dubois (Fort Lauderdale, FL) - Max was recruited as an explosive SG. He suffered a few injuries and never contributed much of anything in his 2 years here. He eventually transferred at the end of the 2006-2007 season, claiming ‘the coaches don’t have plans for me’. Hard to say that this wasn’t a wasted scholarship.
Career – 8 GP (0 GS) 3.5 MPG 1.9 PPG
Grade – F
