St. Joseph’s started its 2015 recruiting efforts with a local commitment on Friday afternoon as three-star guard LaMarr Kimble pledged to stay home and play for the Hawks.

A 6-foot point guard from Neumann-Goretti High School and Team Final, Kimble played for two very reputable programs and gives St. Joseph’s a nice local addition to their backcourt.

Kimble announced his decision on Twitter and also mentioned that staying in Philadelphia meant a lot to him when making a decision.
