Gophers to get visits from two JC standouts

The Minnesota Gophers are expecting visits from two junior college standouts this upcoming weekend. The Gophers have one scholarship to give and have offered both junior college standouts.

The Minnesota Gophers are expecting visits from Terrell Everett, a 6-4 guard from Southwest Missouri-West Plains (MO) CC and 6-5 forward J'son Stamper of Independence (KS) CC this upcoming weekend.

Terrell Everett was named Region 16 Player of the Year. He was the top vote-getter in ballots cast by the coaches of the five Region 16 teams. Everett averaged 18.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game for the Grizzlies, leading the team in all three categories. Everett also led the team in steals with 86 and deflections with 84 as they finished the season 24-8. Everett has received scholarship offers from Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tulsa and Mississippi.

J'son Stamper, a 6-6 sophomore forward from Independence (KS) CC, was offered a scholarship by Minnesota. Gopher head coach Dan Monson and assistant coach Vic Couch visited the Independence campus before heading to the recent NJCAA Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas. Stamper was co-Player of the Year of the Jayhawk Eastern Division along with Andrew Washington from Allen County. Stamper was also named to the first-team All–Region VI Team. He averaged 13.5 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. Stamper shot 51.9% from the field, 16.7% from three-point range and 56.6% from the line. He is an undersized power forward who needs to continue to expand his range.

The Gophers are also looking at 6-2 guard Antwan "Bokie" Alexander from Wabash Valley (IL) CC. He averaged 10.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this season. Alexander shot 54% from the field, 24% from three-point range and 85% from the line.
