And it's not to our Honors Accounting program.

Meet 6-5 super sophomore (2011) wing Sheldon McClellan. h/t $$ Burnt Orange Beat

If you like free, here's a write-up from the Statesman.

And a clip of Sheldon playing a club team of emo boys and random buffoons:


McClellan is a long and athletic play maker from the wing position. He attacks the rim in transition where he can finish above the rim with his great length. In the half court he can score off the catch or dribble from three and he also has a strong mid range game with one or two dribble pull ups. McClellan can stop and pop while he elevates over smaller defenders.

That'll work.

If you're having trouble keeping our incredible basketball recruiting straight, here's what the next three years look like:

2009

SG Avery Bradley 6-2 175
F Jordan Hamilton 6-7 230
F Shawn Williams 6-7 210
PG Jai Lucas (transfer) 5-9 150
**G J'Covan Brown?** (In the J'Clearinghouse)

2010

SG Daniel Bejarano 6-4 200
F Tristan Thompson 6-8 230

2011

PG Myck Kabongo 6-1 170
SF Sheldon McClellan 6-5 180

We'll add a big in 2010 and several more players in 2011. Be excited - our hoops program is about to go from very good to elite.
