Thu., Jan. 17, 2019
MOSCOW, Idaho – The Idaho men’s basketball team has added former Oregon State center Jack Wilson, the team announced on Thursday.
Wilson will sit out the next two semesters due to NCAA transfer rules.
“We are very excited to add Jack to our program,” said Idaho coach Don Verlin in a team release. “Through his high school career he demonstrated the ability to have success both on the court, and in the classroom. Jack is the type of high character young man that we are enthused about adding to our Idaho Program.”
Wilson was a four-star recruit by ESPN out of high school. He averaged 16.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game as a junior at Junipero Sierra High School in San Mateo, California.
The 7-foot, 255-pound Wilson began the year at Oregon State before withdrawing from school at the winter break. Wilson appeared in seven game, averaging 2.9 minutes.
