Curie senior guard Elijah Joiner ended his recruitment on Sunday by committing to Tulsa on Twitter.
The 6-foot-3 Joiner helped the Condors with the Class 4A state championship in Illinois last season as the combo guard averaged 11.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Joiner shot 49 percent from the floor, 36 percent from three-point range and 75 percent from the free-throw line on the season.
Forming a dynamic duo with current DePaul freshman Devin Gage last season, Joiner was one of the toughest players to defend in the city. He committed to Tulsa during his official visit to campus this weekend.
"It felt like home and it was a great situation," Joiner said of Tulsa.
Without Gage this season, Joiner will be Curie's go-to player as the Condors will once again be a major threat for a city and state championship. Since Joiner can handle the ball and also play off of it, it'll be intriguing to see how head coach Mike Oliver uses his star in Curie's offense.
