“Ny” Redding signs with WSU

Ernie Kent landed his third basketball recruit at Washington State on Tuesday, and the Cougars fourth in the class of 2015 when Nyaires “Ny” Redding sent in his National Letter of Intent. Redding is a 6-foot-2, 180 pound guard from Solon Ohio via Westwind Prep in Arizona.

“Our system requires us to have very heady guard play and we are continuing to put together a group that we think is going to be outstanding for the future of Washington State basketball,” Kent said in a press release. “In Ny we have a player that is not only smart, but also is very skilled on both ends of the floor.”

Redding last played at the same Westwind Prep that produced current WSU sophomore guard Que Johnson. In fact, he broke Johnson's record for 40 point games in a season, crossing the threshold five times during a season in which he averaged 29.8 points, 8.7 assists and 2.1 steals per game. He also shot 53 percent from the field and made 89 percent of his free throws.
 
Kent still has one more scholarship to offer in the class of 2014 if he chooses to use it. Saying the Cougars are continuing to put their class together seems to indicate that Kent is open to the idea of signing a fifth player in the class. Besides Redding, the Cougars have received NLOIs from guards Jackie Davis and Tramaine Isabell, and junior college forward Aaron Cheatum.
 
ArizonaPreps.com has an evaluation of Redding's game:
 

Nyaires Redding – The son of a D-I coach and is a very athletic and strong wing.  He is an outstanding ball handler and controls the tempo of the game.  He averages 5.7 assists to every 1 turnover he makes.  He is a mid-major player that has a high ceiling.  He is a lock-down defender.  The negative aspects of his game include his court vision; he tends to make the hard pass instead of the easy one.  He is an NCAA qualifier and carries a 4.0 GPA.
