DICKINSON, ND- Head Men’s Basketball Coach Justin Wetzel has announced the signing Montana Tech transfer 5’9 combo guard Jalen Coates.

Coates was atop of multiple Frontier conference rankings; 2nd in scoring at 18.9 ppg and 2nd in steals at 1.97 per game this past season, and was also an All-Conference selection.

“Jalen is a tough competitive young man who was productive in a very competitive league this past season and I see him being productive in the strong North Star Athletic Association,” said Wetzel.

“I chose DSU because I built a great relationship with Coach Wetzel throughout the recruiting process.  I’ll get better as an individual on and off the court," said Coates.

Coates is from Sacramento CA and prepped at Burbank High School, he will have 2 years remaining with the Blue Hawks.
