South Salem Guard Commits to Portland State:

http://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/s ... 082145001/

South Salem guard Jaden Nielsen-Skinner has committed to Portland State.
Nielsen-Skinner, a 5-foot-11 junior, was a first team all-Greater Valley Conference selection last season after averaging 18.7 points per game.
He's been even better this season, averaging 22.3 points, 3.7 assists and 1.2 steals for the Saxons (11-7, 7-4 GVC), who are are in fourth place in the league following Tuesday’s 74-73 victory over West Salem. The top four teams automatically qualify for the 6A state playoffs.
“I wanted to stay close to home and he’s a good coach,” Nielsen-Skinner said of first-year Portland State coach Barret Peery. “I thought it was a good fit.”
Nielsen-Skinner will be able to sign a National Letter of Intent in November.
PSU, a member of the Big Sky Conference, plays an up-tempo style. The Vikings led then-No. 1 Duke at halftime in the PK80 Invitational in Portland on Nov. 23 before falling 99-81.
“I think style of play is what most stood out to me,” Nielsen-Skinner said.
A three-year starter for South Salem, Nielsen-Skinner helped lead the Saxons to a third-place finish in the 2016 OSAA 6A state tournament.
He’ll be a freshman at PSU for the 2019-20 season and will be reunited with West Salem senior guard Kyle Greeley, who signed with the Vikings in November. Nielsen-Skinner and Greeley have been teammates on AAU teams.
“It should be fun,” Nielsen-Skinner said.

Hauser didn't play last year for Santa Clara due to a "chronic foot injury".

Former Utah Runnin' Utes guard Charles Jones Jr. has reportedly decided where he'll transfer

https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900 ... eport.html

SALT LAKE CITY — Former Utah Runnin' Utes guard Charles Jones Jr. will reportedly finish his collegiate basketball career in the Big Sky Conference.
Verbal Commits reported via Twitter Thursday night that the 6-foot-2, 200-pound native of Portland, Ore., will transfer to Portland State.

Verbal [email protected]
Former Utah G Charles Jones, Jr. is transferring to Portland State.
21 6:01 PM - Jul 18, 2019

Jones Jr. joined the Runnin' Utes after two great seasons at College of Southern Idaho, where he was named a National Junior College Athletic Association All-American both seasons and the Spalding NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Player of the Year in 2018.
In his lone season at Utah, however, Jones Jr. didn't get into the same groove. He appeared in 27 games, but started just two and averaged only 2.6 points in 11.8 minutes per contest.
