Shedrick Nelson, a 6-foot-2 guard from Highline Community College, has signed a letter-of-intent to play for the Lewis-Clark State College men’s basketball team, Warrior coach Tim Walker has announced.
“Shedrick is an athletic guard with size and strength,” Walker said. “He shoots the ball well from 3-point territory and rebounds well for his position. He also is a great defender.”
Nelson, who is from Tacoma,Wash., helped the Thunderbirds to a 15-1 league record and a 22-9 mark overall last season as a sophomore. During the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges tournament he averaged 13 points and 6.3 rebounds per game to go with a 43-percent mark from behind the 3-point line. He scored 17 points and collected seven rebounds in an NWAACC semi-finals game against Lower Columbia College.
As someone who shot 43-percent from behind the arc last season (65-of-152), Nelson has the potential to improve the Warriors’ attack from the outside.
