A couple of University of Hawaii recruiting updates: First, the UH men’s basketball team has secured a verbal commitment from a high-scoring point guard from Sheridan College in Wyoming. JoVon McClanahan announced his intention to join the Rainbow Warriors for the 2020-11 season. This past season, McClanahan averaged 23.5 points, 6.3 assists and 6.5 rebounds in 29 games for the Generals. He shot 47.8% from the floor (44.5% from the three-point line) and 87.8% from the charity stripe.
The 5-11 McClanahan will have three years of eligibility at UH. He is expected to sign his national letter of intent as soon as April 15, which is the first day of the NCAA’s spring signing period. McClanahan should be in line to compete for the teams’s starting point guard position. Last season’s starter, Drew Buggs, recently entered the NCAA’s transfer portal.
Hawaii reportedly beat out Washington State, UC Santa Barbara, Utah Valley and Montana State for McClanahan’s commitment.
Here is a highlight video of McClanahan’s senior season at Salesian College Preparatory School in Richmond, California:
Also, Rainbow Wahine volleyball head coach Robyn Ah Mow has announced the signing of 6-0 middle blocker/opposite Siena Springborn. The incoming freshman out of Newport Beach, California was a two-time All-League selection at Newport Harbor High School.
“We are very thrilled to have Siena join our team this coming fall,” Ah Mow said in a UH release. “Siena is hard working, versatile and committed to becoming the best player she can be. She comes from a great club and we are looking forward to having her.”
