by Staff Reports
Appalachian State announced the signing of two men's basketball players Wednesday night.
The Mountaineers signed Rasheed Worrell, a 6-foot-8 forwad from Coker, Ala., and
point guard Kendrick Flomo, a 6-2 Winston-Salem native.
Worrell, a senior at Sipsey Valley High School, averaged more than 10 points and nine rebounds per game over the past two seasons. In his junior season, he averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds, while making 53.8 percent of his shots.
Worrell is also an all-state honorable mention recipient.
"Rasheed is a really good kid and a player full of potential," Mountaineers coach Jason Capel said. "The first thing that jumps out at you is his length. He is really long and athletic and understands how to use both as an asset to his team."
Flomo, who plays at North Forsyth, averaged 24.7 points and 6.7 assists during his junior season at North Forsyth. Flomo has more than 1,300 points at North Forsyth, and could break their all-time scoring record.
"He has a natural knack for scoring the basketball from anywhere on the floor and has the ability to be a facilitator as well. Kedrick possesses exceptional quickness and athletic ability that will also help him become a very good defender," Capel said. "He is a driven young man with great leadership qualities who works tirelessly on the court and in the classroom. I really think other players will enjoy playing with him and I am very much looking forward to getting the opportunity to coach him at the next level."
