James Demery, a 6'6" wing from Northside Christian Academy, has committed to St. Joe's as he made the announcement on his Twitter account. He joins guard Shavar Newkirk (NY) and Lode as the third member of the Class of 2014 to commit to Phil Martelli and the Hawks. Lodge will also join point guard Chris Wilson and forward DeAndre Bembry as North Carolina natives playing for St. Joe's.
Demery is a scorer and can put the ball in from just about anywhere on the court. His best asset is his ability to hit the three-pointer, even when he doesn't get his feet set. Demery can get the ball to the rim and finish due to strong body control. He is an impact player who can step in right away and help the Hawks. This is a big-time get for Phil Martelli.
