Hawai'i men's basketball program lands juco guard Garrett Nevels

April 20, 2013

University of Hawai`i men's basketball coach Gib Arnold announced that guard Garrett Nevels of Mount San Antonio College has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Rainbow Warriors for the 2013-14 season.

“What I like best about Garrett is that he's a winner,” Arnold said. “His team won the California junior college championship and he was MVP of the tournament. He's an athletic guard who can shoot and defend. I believe he was the best JC guard in California. We went after him hard and I'm glad he's a Warrior.”

Nevels, a 6-2 guard from Los Angeles, will have two years of eligibility with Hawai'i after leading Mt. SAC to its first state junior college men's hoops title this past spring. He scored 32 points in the championship game against Chaffey College and was the CCCAA State Tournament MVP.

For the season, Nevels averaged 19.8 points per game as a sophomore and led the team in rebounding (5.6 rpg) and three-pointers made (49). He shot 57.8 percent from the field, 81.4 percent from the free-throw line, and 47.6 percent on three-pointers.

Nevels, who was a first-team all-city player at Palisades Charter High School, also led Mt. Sac with a 3.58 GPA.

The Rainbow Warriors already received a commitment from Missouri transfer Negus Webster-Chan on the first day of the spring signing period. This year's recruiting class also includes early signees Stefan Jovanovic and Michael Thomas, a pair of California prepsters.
