BG Men Land 4th Commitment

The Men's Basketball program picked up its 4th commitment today, this one a PG and a teammate of the guy we signed yesterday at Paris Junior College in Texas.

As far as anyone knew, BG had only 3 scholarships available (Black, Sealey and Edwards) so something else is going on.  Either somebody is a walk-on or another player won't be back or won't be back on scholarship.  I've heard nothing, so we will wait and see.

The young man is named Jovan Austin.  He's the second JC point guard BG has brought for next year.  BG had everyone back at guard, so I think these recruits reflect an assessment of our guard play and play at the point in particular.

For Paris, Jovan Scored 9.9 PPG on 46% shooting, with 2.8 assists per game.  He started all 31 games.  He had 27 assists in the team's last 7 games, so he could have been improving as the season went on.

Here is what their bio says about him out of HS....
Helped to lead the Warriors to a 35-3 record and to the District 7-5A Championship... Named the District 7-5A Offensive Player of the Year and helped team to the regional championship game.
One last note...his shooting % improved a lot at Paris, for whatever that might be worth.

Welcome to the Falcons, Jovan.
