Saints sign Arkansas native Caleb Kendrick

Moberly, Mo.

Central Christian College of the Bible head men's basketball coach Jack Defreitas on Wednesday announced the signing of Caleb Kendrick for the 2018-19 season. Kendrick is the eighth member of the Saints' 2018 class.

Kendrick, a 5-5 point guard, is a 2018 graduate of Jacksonville High School in Jacksonville, Ark. The three-year letterman averaged 11.2 points, 4.2 assists, and 2.5 steals per game as a senior.

"Caleb is a spark out on the floor that makes up for his lack of size with hustle," Defreitas said. "He is quick, can jump passing lanes, looks to take charges, and shoots the ball well. On top of that, he is another strong character guy that we've added to an already strong group."

Kendrick helped the Titans, who advanced to the quarterfinals of the 6A state tournament, to a 15-16 record in 2017-18. The Titans went 15-15 during Kendrick's junior season and 18-9 when he was a sophomore. This past December, he was named the MVP of the Bulldog Classic in Fayetteville.

Kendrick plans to pursue an Associate of Professional Studies degree while also earning a Bachelor of Arts in Teacher Preparation from CCCB's partner institution, Hope International University.

Kendrick joins Luis Garza of Mission, Texas, Cruz Mendoza of Alton, Texas, Trey Black of Choctaw, Okla., Ian Denton of Cairo, Mo., Keshawn White of Slater, Mo., Anthony Moreno of Donna, Texas, and Caleif Gregg of Independence, Mo., as members of the Saints' 2018 recruiting class.
