Lone Star JUCO Guard Signs with ASU

DevilsDigest talked to 6-4 200 point guard Antwi Atuahene following his commitment to the Sun Devils.

"I like the environment over there," Said Antwi Atuahene, a guard from Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, TX. "It's a real college town. I liked the hospitality they showed me there. I just feel that I can be an impact payer in every aspect there."

In a recent interview to DevilsDigest, Atuahene vowed not to wait that long to pull the trigger, and sure enough he did so less than a week after his visit. He took an unofficial visit to Texas A&M, and canceled a visit to Illinois this weekend due to his signing. Indiana was another school he was looking at.

Atuahene was all-region following his sophomore year at Trinity Valley Community College where he averaged 17.4 ppg, 10 apg, and 3.1 spg. He shot 44.7% from the field, and 75% from the free throw line. "My strong points are my leadership, versatility, passing, and getting to the hole," he said as he self-assessed his skills. "I really just need to work on my shooting."

The guard was a standout player in the high school scene in Canada, where he was born and raised (his parents are originally from Ghana). He was the 1st runner up for Toronto's prestigious Mr. Basketball award, and one of the best prep players that city has produced in recent years.

Atuahene originally signed with Rutgers, but problems with his Visa and transcript prevented him from playing there. Following his AA degree completion in June, he will have three years of eligibility left. He does plan to attend second summer session in Tempe.
