Johnathan Burroughs-Cook has verbally committed to play basketball at College of Charleston next season.
The 6-1 guard from Ridgeway High School in Memphis, TN, becomes the third player to sign or commit to the Cougars this year.
Burroughs-Cook joins point guard Joe Chealey, from Apopka, Fla., and forward Terrance O’Donohue, of Norcross, Ga. Chealey and O’Donohue signed with the Cougars in November.
Burroughs-Cook, a two-year starter, averaged 19.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and two steals a game this past season. The Warriors compiled a 62-7 mark over the last two seasons.
“Johnathan is a combo guard that will compliment Anthony Stitt and incoming freshman Joe Chealey very well,” said CBSsports.com national college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman. “He can play with the ball or off the ball and will bring a Memphis toughness to the College of Charleston.”
The departure of forward Trent Wiedeman and guard Trevonté Dixon, the Cougars are expected to sign at least one more player this month.
