Nevada Signs D-II JC Basketball Player of the Year

By  | 

The Wolf Pack basketball team has signed the Division II Junior College Player of the Year.

Tyron Criswell signed his letter of intent on Tuesday, picking Nevada over offers from Nebraska and Auburn.

The 6-foot-4 sophomore averaged 20.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.3 steals at Central Community College last season, leading the Raiders to a 26-10 record.

Criswell was named a first team All-American and to the all-tournament team at the national tournament, where the Raiders finished third overall.

He played forward last season with the Raiders, but will play his natural position of shooting guard with the Wolf Pack.

He joins a packed recruiting class for Nevada, which includes freshman forwards Elijah Foster (6-foot-7) and Robyn Missa (6-foot-9) who both committed last week.

The Wolf Pack already signed guard Eric Cooper Jr. (6-foot-4) and forward Kaileb Rodriguez (6-foot-9) in the early signing period. Cooper originally committed to Arizona, while Rodriguez began his career at Cal before transferring to Sheridan Community College.
