UMKC has two very interested recruits ready to sign on the dotted line. David Nurse, who is a 6-2 guard from Kearney, Missouri, has given head coach Rich Zvosec a verbal commitment. So has 6-9 Johnson County (Ks.) Community College transfer Kyle Spears.

Nurse averaged 18 points per game for Kearney this past season, while Spears averaged 7.7 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. Both players are expected to sign a letter of intent once the late signing period begins on April 13.
