Mt. SAC guard Garrett Nevels commits to UH

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:55 a.m. HST, Apr 17, 2013

Mount San Antonio College junior guard Garrett Nevels has committed to play for the Hawaii basketball team, a team source confirmed Tuesday night.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Nevels, who will have two years of eligibility, can officially sign with UH as soon as today (Wednesday), the first day of the spring signing period.

Nevels, of Los Angeles, averaged 19.8 points on 57.8 percent shooting from the field, 81.4 percent from the free-throw line and 47.6 percent on 3-pointers as a Mounties sophomore.

His teammate Corey Allen took an official visit to UH at the same time as Nevels at the start of the month. Allen committed to South Florida last weekend.

Nevels, out of Palisades Charter High School, was the CCCAA State Tournament MVP in helping the Mounties to their first state junior college men's hoops title. Nevels had 32 points in the championship game against Chaffey College.

He leads the team with a 3.58 GPA, according to the Mt. SAC website.

Missouri transfer Negus Webster-Chan is the other known commit for Gib Arnold so far this spring. Two others, Michael Thomas and Stefan Jovanovic, signed with the Rainbow Warriors in the fall.

Nevels took a visit to Morehead State last weekend. It's believed his recruitment came down to UH and Morehead after some previous interest from New Mexico.

Several articles state that he is a scoring machine... One article said that he could average 25 points a game if he shot more...great recruit Gib...with Negus, it looks like our backcourt is now set...that's what we really lacked last year was guards who could score...

Amen about the Guards especially at the Point. Also need a sharpshooter who is consistent w/ the 3. Hopefully Rozitis returns as well since he is graduating

Hopefully Arnold has better relations with these players and they stay for a while. Solid recruiter for sure, not so solid in the x's and o's. Perhaps it will get better, certainly hope so.

Great job of recruiting. Gibbs why don't you call retired Coach Riley Wallace and ask him for advise in keeping and coaching players. You have too many players leaving , and it can't be because of lack of playing time.
