Following a standout high school career that saw him top 1,000 career points and earn first-team All-Big Country Preps honors each of the past two seasons, Abilene High point guard Jalen McGee knew he wanted to play college basketball. He just needed to find the right fit and opportunity.
While it took a little longer than he might have anticipated to materialize, the senior found both at Midwestern State University.
After visiting the Division II school in Wichita Falls last week and receiving a scholarship offer during that trip, McGee announced his commitment on Monday. And on Thursday, he made that pledge official, fulfilling a lifelong dream when he signed his letter of intent with MSU.
