Southern Utah Signs JUCO Jayson Cheesman

Southern Utah has their fourth commitment of the year, as they have signed JUCO big man Jayson Cheesman to a National Letter of Intent. Cheesman is a 6'11'' big man that played for Salt Lake Community College.

"We are thrilled to have Jayson join the Thunderbird family next season as we enter the Big Sky," Robinson said. "Jayson brings needed experience, size, and skill to our frontline. He has been well coached under Coach Phillips and we look forward to his contributions to our program."
Cheesman averaged 7.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game last year, shooting 50% from the field. Those numbers don't jump out at you, but big men are hard to find in the Big Sky, and he is certainly a big body that will at the very least be a nice rotation player. If he can be a solid rebounder and defender down low, that is a nice pickup.

Cheesman reportedly also had interest from San Francisco, Rhode Island, and San Jose State.
