‘Ny’ Redding to join WSU basketball, Ernie Kent
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.
