Utah State basketball Coach Kohn Smith reports early signings of three youngsters who will be freshmen in the 1991-92 season. They are 6-foot-6 Roger Hendrix of Rolling Hills, Calif.; 6-1 Sanchez Turner of Vacleavce, Miss.; and 6-1 Zoderick Green of Cedar Hill, Texas.

Smith says Green and Turner have big defensive capabilities while Hendrix is a shooter/scorer. "They all fit into the up-tempo style of play we like," Smith says.Hendrix averaged 24.8 points and 8.1 rebounds last season and is a candidate for California 3A player of the year. In two early games this season, he had 41 and 36 points. Turner averaged 21.3 points and was a holiday-tournament MVP and was named one of the top 10 Gulf-Coast players by the Mississippi Press newspaper. In the first 10 games of his senior season, he's averaging 29 points. Green averages 14.4 points.
