The University of Illinois Springfield men’s basketball program has added to its recruiting class with the signing of 6-foot-5 guard-forward Paxton Harmon.
The Warsaw native signed a letter of intent Monday to play for the Prairie Stars.
Harmon was the No. 3 scorer on the John Wood Community College team last season with 14.2 points per game as a sophomore. He ranked second with 5.7 rebounds per game. He should bring versatility to the Stars’ lineup.
“At the beginning of the season, I played a little guard,” Harmon said. “At the end of the season, I played a forward position. I played a little bit of guard in every game, too.”
Harmon helped John Wood to a runner-up finish at the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II National Tournament.
“The UIS campus and facilities are a lot nicer than any other schools that I went to,” Harmon said.
