Men's basketball adds 6-foot-8 Vorwaller
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's basketball team added more size Wednesday as coach Russ Caton announced he had received a National Letter of Intent from Justin Vorwaller.
Vorwaller was a 2006 graduate of Ponderosa High School where he averaged 12 points and 10 rebounds per game as a senior. He served his Latter Day Saints mission in Houston, Texas right out of high school and played at Snow Community College in 2009-10. He attended Utah Valley State this past year but did not play.
"At 6-foot-8 and 245 pounds, Justin brings us much needed strength, size, and maturity to our team," said Caton. "I can't wait to see him go to work around the basket for us this year. He is a high quality person and student who we think is going to impact our team in a big way."
At Snow CC, Vorwaller averaged four points and 3.8 rebounds while shooting 56 percent from the field. He had a 17-point, eight-rebound game against Colorado Northwestern CC.
