Volunteers Sign Highly Touted Guard from Louisville
May 11, 2017
CARTERVILLE, IL – Point guard David Sloan of Louisville, Ky., has signed a Letter of Intent to attend John A. Logan and play basketball for the Volunteers next season.
The 6-foot 1-inch, 165-pound Sloan was recruited by Louisville, Iowa State, Missouri, Memphis, Butler and many others. Sloan played last season at a prep school, 22-foot Academy in South Carolina. Prior to last season, Sloan played at Taylor County High School outside Louisville where he averaged over 20 points per game.
“David is an excellent basketball player who has played against some of the top players in the country,” said Kyle Smithpeters, Logan coach. “He has a chance to be one of elite players in the nation and he can certainly have a big impact on our program at Logan. Sloan is a scorer and passer who will be a floor general who adds stability to our game.”
“I feel real good about signing with Logan,” Sloan said. “When I made my campus visit it seemed like I was home. I’m really looking forward to playing for the Volunteers.”
Sloan is the first player to sign with the Volunteers. He will join two returning players, 6-11 Aaron Twist and 6-7 Michael Tucker who played on last year’s team that was 24-7.
“I expect to add more players in the near future,” Smithpeters said. “We are talking to some outstanding players but we are moving slowly to make sure that we don’t make any mistakes”
