Southern Utah Signs Juwan Major

Late last week, Southern Utah coach Nick Robinson added to a solid recruiting class with the addition of guard Juwan Major out of Las Vegas. By my count, Major is the fourth member of the Thunderbirds recruiting class.

Despite not visiting the Cedar City, Utah, school, Major had no reservations about committing. Southern Utah coaches had been to a few Las Vegas practices and sold him on his chances of thriving in their program. And, more important, the school is about a three-hour drive from his home base in Southern Nevada.
He also had an offer from Portland State, and apparently received some interest from Arizona State and Detroit. He follows his twin sister (women's basketball) and older brother (football) as scholarship athletes for Southern Utah.

He is a 6'3'', lefty shooting guard with good length. He has good athletic ability, and uses a quick first step to be able to score off the dribble. He is also a solid passer which is big when combined with his ability to get to the rim off the dribble. He will need to work on his outside shot, as it is a bit inconsistent at this point in his young career.

He is a nice pickup for Nick Robinson, who is looking to restock the backcourt, since he will be losing Jackson Stevenett and Damon Heuir.
