Idaho State Signs Jeffrey Solarin

Idaho State inked 6'4'' guard Jeffrey Solarin last week, a guy with a unique style of play for a guard. He is 6'4'', and played the last two years at Northwest College in Powell, WY.

Last year, he averaged 16.6 PPG and 8.9 rebounds per game, upping that to over ten boards per game in conference play. The 8.9 RPG should clue you in, he is not a traditional shooting guard. His shooting percentages look more like a center... he shot 61.5% from the floor last year, but only shot four threes all year.

He is a guy that will live in the arc and play tough defense, which should be a great fit for Bill Evans. He is the sixth member of their recruiting class, which will go a long way towards making sure they are a deeper team. It is a slow rebuild, but the Bengals are slowly putting some really nice pieces in place.

  1. He's not a guard. He's an undersized 4 man. Much in the mold of Darrick Barden.
