Utah State men’s basketball head coach Stew Morrill announced Friday that high school standout JoJo McGlaston has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Aggies in the 2013-14 season.
McGlaston is a 6-foot-4, 180-pound guard from Dublin, Calif., where he was a four-year letterwinner at Dublin High School. In leading the Gaels in scoring at 22.0 points per game as a prep senior, McGlaston also led Dublin to a 27-7 overall record and its first Diablo Foothill Athletic League title since 1973, as the Gaels lost in the NorCal Division II Championship game. He also averaged 7.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.1 steals per game, while shooting 58 percent from the field, including 38 percent from three-point range.
"JoJo is a tremendous athlete who can score in a variety of ways. He has the talent to become a very good Mountain West Conference performer on both ends of the court. We are excited about adding a wing player with JoJo's potential," Morrill said.
McGlaston was the DFAL Player of the Year and a first-team all-league selection as a senior, as well as earning first-team all-Bay Area and first-team all-East Bay honors, in addition to second-team all-California Division II accolades. He was also named to the San Francisco Chronicle's all-Metro second-team list as well as to the Contra Costa Times' all-East Bay Team.
This season, McGlaston netted a season-high 40 points in one of Dublin's victories, adding a NorCal Division II record 35 points while also pulling down 14 rebounds in Dublin's loss in the D-II finals.
USU officially joins the Mountain West Conference on July 1, 2013.
Doug Hoffman is the assistant athletic director for Utah State University Athletic Media Relations.
