Ervin Added to Schrage’s 2019 Elon Men’s Basketball Recruiting Class

ELON, N.C. – Elon University head men’s basketball coach Mike Schrage announced the addition of Zac Ervin to the incoming 2019 recruiting class on Friday, May 3.

Ervin will enter the Elon program for the 2019-20 season. He is the second addition to Schrage’s first recruiting class at Elon. He joins Hunter McIntosh, who was signed on Wednesday, May 1. Ervin joins the Phoenix squad from Gate City High School, where he was coached by head coach Scott Vermillion.

“As soon as Zac became available to recruit, we knew we needed to get to Gate City, Virginia to visit and recruit him,” said Schrage. “Our staff was already aware of his abilities as a player and became so impressed with him and his family as people. Zac has the opportunity to help us immediately with his ability to shoot and score but his love for the game and IQ for it really stands out too. He comes from a basketball family and a winning environment. We appreciate his belief in us and our vision and can’t wait to get him to campus this summer. Please welcome Zac and his parents – Greg and Gayle – to Elon and our basketball family.”
