Point Guard Gavin Peppers Signs a National Letter of Intent to Come to Cleveland State

Gavin Peppers (Brookeville, Md.), a first team all-region selection at Laramie County CC last season, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Cleveland State and play basketball. Peppers will have two seasons of eligibility for the Vikings.

“Gavin fulfills our need for an experienced point guard,” CSU head coach Gary Waters said. “He adds the ability to score as a point guard and can also get others involved. He had a phenomenal season at Laramie County and we look forward to him leading the resurgence of Cleveland State basketball.”

A 6-foot-2 point guard, Peppers averaged 18.7 points, 3.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game last year, helping LCCC to a 19-12 record and a third place finish in Region IX South with a 9-7 mark. He shot 37-percent from three-point, making 74 three-pointers, and made 83-percent from the free throw line, going 161-of-195.

Peppers scored in double figures in 29 of 31 games, including a season-high 39 points in a victory over Northeastern JC in the regular season finale. It was one of two 30-point performances for Peppers who finished the year with 10, 20-point games.

Peppers spent his freshman season at Olympic College in Bremerton, Wash., where he averaged 15.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists over 16 games.
