Clipper men’s basketball has begun to round out their 2019 recruiting class as they add four more incoming freshmen. The recruiting trail followed down I-5 from Toledo to Toutle Lake, and then finishing up in Vancouver, WA. “We had a very successful week gaining four new commitments to our program, each bringing something unique to the table,” head coach Andrew Green says of the newcomers “Westin Wallace will give us much needed size and a presence in the post, and Logan Grabenhorst brings a high basketball IQ and is a very crafty scorer.” Wallace, a 6’5 post player from Toledo, WA, brings both length and skill to the Clippers’ roster. Grabenhorst is a 5’11 shooting guard from Toutle Lake, WA, provides more depth at the guard position, and is able to score in multiple ways.
The Clippers also gained commitments from two Vancouver, WA natives, Dominic Blake and James Husband. Blake, a guard from Columbia Christian High School, is a very skilled ball handler with good court vision. Coach Green says of Blake, “We are very excited to add Dominic to the recruiting class. He’s a very smart basketball player, sees the court well, and can be a threat from behind the arc.” Husband is a graduate of Fort Vancouver High School and Green is excited about his capabilities on the defensive end. “I noticed very quickly that James is an aggressive and physical player. His style of play matches up very nicely for what I will expect from him defensively.”
As the recruiting cycle begins to come to a close, Green is very happy about the progress building the roster. He adds, “The four we added last week will play a major role building our culture. While they are all accomplished on the basketball court, I am more impressed that all four are of high character and came with great recommendations from their coaches.” SPSCC men’s basketball will open the season October 12, playing in the Pure Focus NW Juco Jamboree in Centralia, WA.
