Jackrabbit menís basketball adds one
The South Dakota State men's basketball team added 6-6 California guard/forward Monday, as Matt Donlan signed a National Letter of Intent, indicating his plans to enroll at South Dakota State in the fall and compete for the Jackrabbit basketball team.
"Matt is another great fit for our basketball program," head coach Scott Nagy said. "He's an extremely gifted shooter and his size and athleticism will allow us to play him at a couple of different positions on the floor. Matt's a guy that continues to get better and better because of his tireless work ethic, and we're very excited to add a player of Matt's character and talent this late in the recruiting process. I fully expect him play a big role in the future of South Dakota State basketball."
Donlan comes to South Dakota State from Capital Christian High School in Sacramento, Calif., where he averaged 17.4 points and 5.5 rebounds per game as a senior in 2011-12 in leading the Cougars to a Sac-Joaquin section championship with a 27-6 record.
Donlan also earned Golden Empire League most valuable player honors after leading his team to a 9-1 record in league play.
As a junior in 2010-11, Donlan averaged 15.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in leading the Cougars to a 17-11 overall record and a 6-4 record in the Golden Empire League.
Adding to his list of accomplishments, Donlan holds numerous Capital Christian High School records, including points in a season, points in a career, three-point field goals made in a season and three-point field goals made in a career.
In addition to his skill on the court, Donlan made the honor roll and Dean's List in all four years of high school.
