Bryce Thurston's first conversation with Mount St. Mary's coach Jamion Christian was memorable. The 6-foot-5, 195-pound shooting guard hadn't made much of an impact for Mount Saint Joseph's varsity, but his play on the Amateur Athletic Union circuit with Maryland 3D piqured Christian's interest. "He said, 'I'd love to have you. You're our guy. You fit our system,'" Thurston recalled. "That's what you want to hear from a coach when he calls you. A lot of times an assistant coach calls you. But when the head coach calls you, that's how" you know you're wanted. Thurston, a senior who scores in double digits at Montverde (Fla.) Academy, committed to the Mountaineers this weekend. Hartford, Loyola Maryland, Quinnipiac and Radford also recruited him.
