BOCA RATON, Fla. – With a large graduating class looming in the near future, Lynn University men's basketball head coach Jeff Price announced the signing of another young talent as Jamison Evans inked a National Letter of Intent.
"We very much look forward to having a young player of Jamison's caliber in our program," said Price. "He provides us with an athletic guard that should have a promising career at Lynn."
Evans is in the midst of his senior season at Rutland High School in Rutland, Vt., where he is averaging 21 points, six rebounds and three assists per game. The New England Recruiting Report has tabbed Evans as the 4th-ranked 2019 high school prospect in the entire state and the top-ranked prospect in the Vermont Principal's Association (VPA).
The 6-foot-3 guard has guided RHS to back-to-back Division 1 Vermont State Championships as the 16-4 Raiders look to make it a three-peat this season. Evans is also just eight points away from notching 1,000 in his career, hoping to reach the milestone this Friday vs. Burr & Burton.
Evans broke out last year as a junior, putting up 18 points per game before being named the Vermont Boys Basketball Player of the Year by USA Today, First Team All-State by the Burlington Free Press, a Marble Valley League First Team All-Star and a part of the Dream Dozen from the Vermont Basketball Coaches Association.
