Miramar hoops star Lance Tejada set to transfer to Ely



Pompano Beach Blanche Ely will bolster its bid for a repeat FHSAA Class 7A state boys’ basketball title with the imminent transfer of Miramar’s Lance Tejada, a University of Miami target and the No. 2 point guard prospect in the 2014 class by SourceHoops.com.

The 6-2 Tejada brings added star power to an already highly touted backcourt led by 6-3 sharp shooter Richard Lee, a transfer from rival Northeast, rising senior Dallas Cameron, Darrion Allen and James Labadi.

Ranked No. 7 in the 2014 class overall, Tejada’s shooting touch and outstanding feel for the game has helped him pick up offers from the Hurricanes, George Mason and UCF.

Florida, Marquette, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Drexel and Rutgers have also expressed interest.

Tejada followed up an outstanding freshman campaign when he helped lead Miramar to its first State Final Four appearance by averaging a career-high 14 points, seven assists and five rebounds as a sophomore.

Tejada’s exit from Miramar follows Zachary Johnson, a No. 5 ranked prospect who transferred to reigning Class 6A state champion Miami Norland.
