Quinton Upshur Commits to Northern Arizona

I am not sure exactly when this happened, but 6'4'' JUCO wing Quinton Upshur has committed to Northern Arizona. By my count he is the seventh guy that NAU will be bringing in.

I haven't been able to find a ton of information about him, but it looks like he spent a year at the Virginia Military Institute before transferring to Kilgore College in Kilgore, Texas. In his freshman year at VMI he played 18.1 minutes, averaging 5.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. He also racked up 1.4 steals with a 4.2% steal rate, which was 28th in the country.

At Kilgore College, he averages 13.5 PPG and 5.1 RPG, shooting 34.9% from three-point range. From what I have heard about Upshur, he has a good chance of being the best player from the Lumberjacks big class. It will be fun to watch him the next couple years.
