Ga. - Augusta State head men’s basketball coach Dip Metress announced Wednesday the second signee of the spring recruiting period.
Kyle Armour, a 5-11, 175-pound point guard from Perth, Australia, has signed a national letter-of-intent to join the Jaguar men’s basketball program beginning with the Fall, 2010 semester.
A native of Perth, Australia, Armour spent last season at Missouri State-West Plains College. He averaged 6.0 points and 3.5 assists per game while helping lead the Grizzlies to a 20-9 record. Previously, Armour attended the prestigious Australian Institute of Sport and will have three years of eligibility with the Jaguars.
“Kyle is a true point guard who thrives in getting people the basketball at the right spot and at the right time,” Metress said. “Kyle possesses excellent quickness and vision. He’s the first (Australian) Institute (Of Sport) player we have ever had and we expect him to have a productive three years here at ASU.”
The Jags return five letterwinners from a nucleus that amassed a 110-23 record over the last four seasons. In 2009-10, ASU registered a 29-4 mark, captured the Peach Belt Conference regular-season championship, reached the Elite Eight for the third consecutive season and was ranked No. 1 in the nation on two separate occasions.
