DICKINSON, ND- Head Men’s Basketball coach Justin Wetzel has announced the signing of 6’0 shooting guard Malcolm Whittington of the power program MT San Antonio College. This is the second recruit from MT San Antonio for the Blue Hawks this off season, 6’11 Thomas Cowan was inked in June.
Malcolm was a key contributor for a program that was 27-2 this past season capturing the Pacific Coast Conference title, where he started 4 games and appeared in all 29 games. During the 14/15 campaign Whittington was a threat behind the arc shooting 39% from 3pt.
“First and foremost I was very impressed with Malcolm as a mature young man who is a self-starter on and off the court. His ability to run the floor and shoot the ball will add to the solids guards we already have in the program, also he is a competitor and comes from a winning program and a great coach in Coach Maloney,” stated Wetzel.
“I liked the atmosphere around the program, I look forward to bettering myself as a man and student athlete. “I cannot wait for the season to start and get the championship process started,” said Whittington.
