MBB Commit

So big news for the "use all the scholarships" camp.  There's only one left.

Trey Diggs announced his commitment to BG today.  Diggs is a JUCO player who will be eligible immediately and have two seasons ahead of him.

He's a 6'5" G from Northwest Florida State College.  He didn't put up big numbers there...7.7 PPG and 42% overall shooting.  He's clearly a shooter.  He shot 39% from 3FG, which is good, and he had a significant number of attempts.  He averaged about 16 minutes a game.

He played on a good team.  They were a #1 seed in the national tourney and made the Elite Eight.

He started his college career at DII Florida Southern, where he scored 9.6 PPG as a FR and shot 41% from 3FG.  He went to NW Florida State because it is a high-level JUCO program that puts a lot of guys into D1 ball.  A teammate committed to Oregon before the season started--he is the #1 JUCO prospect.  They have 5 of the top 100 JUCO transfers, all guys who are not Diggs.  They had 5 last year, including Derek Funderburk, who went to NC State.

Diggs averaged 20 PPG and 8 RPG as a senior in HS in Niceville FL.

I'm only kind of kidding about using all the scholarships.  The only thing I would say is that I had expected BG to use both scholarships for some post help.  Will be interesting to see what happens with the one that's left.

Welcome to the Falcons, Trey.
