New Friars coach has No. 11 class

First-year Providence College head coach Ed Cooley announced his 2012 recruiting class on Thursday at the school.

Suiting up for the Friars in 2012 will be ESPNU 100 prospects Ricardo Ledo (Providence, R.I./South Kent School) and Kris Dunn (New London, Conn./New London H.S.) along with shooting guard Josh Fortune (Hampton, Va./Kecoughtan H.S.).

Speaking about Ledo, the 22nd ranked player on ESPN.com, Cooley said: "Ricky Ledo is a truly gifted scorer. He can score from all over the court. Many scouts consider him to be the best natural scorer in the country. Like Kris Dunn, he will help put our team in a position to gain respect on a national level. Ricky will be a key member of our team next season."
