South Alabama’s head basketball coach Ronnie Arrow announced on Friday that they received three National Letter of Intent’s from players during the early signing period.

Ken Williams, Terence Johnson and Vieux Kande sent in their LOI’s as they intend to join the program for the 2013-2014 season.

Williams, a 5’11”, 170 pound point guard and son of former University of Houtson star “Juice” Williams. He was rated a three-star athlete by Scout and the #28 player ranked in the class of 2013. As as sophomore he averaged 24.6 points per game by making 57 3-point shots.

“I’ve known him and his family since he was about five years old,” Arrow said. “His father was one of the best shooters to come out of the University of Houston. He was there right before ‘Phi Slamma Jamma.’ What Ken brings to the table is the ability to shoot and handle the ball. He’s a three-star basketball player that was recruited heavily. We’re very happy to have the caliber of player that he is.”

“He’s a winner,” Arrow said. “Wherever he’s been, he’s won. There are three things you always want in your program: good citizens, good shooters and winners, and he has all three attributes.”

Johnson enters his fourth year as a starter at Deerfield Beach (FL) High School where he has led the team to a 42-10 combined record over the last two season. Last season he averaged 21.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game as they went 22-5. He earned First Team All-Broward County honors from both the Miami Herald and the Sun Sentinel.

Johnson is a 6’4″ swing player that averaged a double-double in his sophomore season with 14.1 points and 10 rebounds per game. He also average 2.1 assists per game.

“With Terence and Ken, we feel like that we have a backcourt in the making that will be as good as any that we play,” Arrow said.

“He’s strong and likes to guard,” Arrow continued. “He is more of a scorer than just a shooter.”

Kande is a 6’9″ forward that currently attends Sagemont School in Weston, FL. He is a native of Dakar, Senegal.

“What we wanted is a true post man who wants the ball and doesn’t mind getting hit,” Arrow stated. “When the ball goes up, he goes and gets it. He doesn’t care if there’s one guy around it or three guys. He feels like every ball that comes off the rim is his.”

This season he has moved into a starting role and is averaging 16.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game through two games. He has back-to-back double-doubles in their first two games with 23 points and 13 rebounds in the opening game followed by a 10 point, 10 rebound and 7 block game in his second.
