June 8, 2010
Herb Sendek and his staff have signed two more student-athletes to play for ASU beginning in 2009-10, as both Kyle Cain and Carrick Felix inked papers to join the Sun Devil program.
'We are ecstatic to add Kyle and Carrick to our family,' says Sendek, who will enter his fifth year at ASU and was the 2009-10 Pac-10 Coach of the Year. 'Both young men have outstanding character and talent.'
Felix, an athletic 6-foot-6 wing at the College of Southern Idaho and Cain, a 6-foot-7 forward from New Hampton (N.H.) Prep, will join five other newcomers next year in the rotation.
Felix played high school hoops at Millennium High in Goodyear, Ariz. He sat out his first season at the College of Southern Idaho, earning a medical redshirt. He averaged 14.8 points and 4.7 rebound in 2009-10 and has three years of eligibility.
Cain, a 6-7, 210 lb. forward, finished his prep career at the New Hampton School in New Hampshire and was one of four NCAA Division I signees for New Hampton and head coach Pete Hutchins.
A native of Calumet City, Ill., Cain starred at Thornton Fractional North H.S. He helped lead the Meteors to a 17-6 record during the 2008-09 season, competing in the Illinois 4A division. He earned All-State honors from the Illinois Basketball Services (IBS) and from the Champaign News-Gazette. He played his AAU basketball with the Illinois Warriors and head coach Larry Butler.
