The University of Hawai'i men's basketball team added yet another new recruit to its roster today.
Anthony Salter, a coveted point guard at Iowa Western Community College, said today he is committed to playing for the Rainbow Warriors next season.
"Why not Hawai'i?" Salter said. "It's beautiful here. What's not to like? The campus, the facilities, the people, the coaches, the players. I saw all of that and it just felt like a good fit."
Salter, who is 5 feet 11 and 175 pounds, averaged 12.4 points, 2.8 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore at Iowa Western last season. He will have two seasons of NCAA Division I eligibility.
Salter said he will sign a national letter of intent tomorrow.
Several recruiting websites rank Salter among the top junior college point guards in the nation. He was also being recruited by Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Charlotte.
Once he signs the letter of intent, Salter will become the eighth new recruit to sign with Hawaii for next season.
