A prolific junior-college point guard is set to join the UH men’s basketball team.
JoVon McClanahan, who is completing his first year at Sheridan (Wy.) College, announced on Twitter and then confirmed to Hawaii Warrior World that he will accept a basketball scholarship from the Rainbow Warriors.
If the NCAA schedule holds, McClanahan will be allowed to sign a letter of intent on April 15, the first day of the spring-signing period for basketball recruits. McClanahan, who was an NCAA academic qualifier out of high school, will have four years to play three UH seasons.

This past season, 5-foot-11 McClanahan averaged 23.5 points (on 47.8% shooting, including 44.5% on 3s), 6.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists. Sheridan ran a four-out offense similar in concepts to the one the ‘Bows’ have used in previous seasons.
McClanahan chose UH over UC Santa Barbara, Washington State and Montana State.
His twin brother, Jaden, is a point guard at Independence (Kan.) Community College.
McClanahan was a three-year starter at Salesian High in Richmond, Calif. During his prep career, Salesian was 88-8.
