Recruit Deontae North signs with Long Beach State Men's Basketball program

November 25, 2013

The Long Beach State Men’s Basketball program recruited another high school player for next year's squad, as the school announced that Deontae North has signed a National Letter of Intent, and will join the fall signing class.  The university already has commitments from Justin Bibbins, Jack Williams, and Temidayo Yussuf.

North is described by ESPN as “a high-energy wing that plays with purpose at both ends. He has a solid looking frame with long arms and he is a tremendous slasher while attacking the rim.”

He is also a local product, having played as a sophomore at Jordan High School where he earned first-team All-Moore League honors as well as a second-team Press-Telegram Dream Team nod.

“We like Deonte's athleticism, versatility and aggressiveness but most of all, similar to the other three recruits, we value his will to win,” noted head coach Dan Monson. “We are excited to welcome him to the Beach family.”

The 6-4 shooting guard transferred to Corona Centennial for his junior season, where he averaged a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds per game while leading the Huskies to a 26-3 record. A first-team all-conference selection for the second straight year, North scored a career-high 27 points against Jordan in the first round of the CIF playoffs. He also posted a double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds against Roosevelt High School in the Big 8 championship game.

With North in the fold, the 49ers will have a balanced recruiting class.  The class features players who can play multiple positions on the floor, and consists of two guards and two forwards.
