Canadian point guard to visit Cleveland State

Kash Thomas
Gavin Peppers
The Spring signing period begins today.

Cleveland State has three players currently committed to be a part of the 2016 recruiting class.

Junior college point guard Gavin Peppers is expected to sign with the Vikings - joining early signees forwards Evan Clayborne and Andy Lucien.

Peppers is a 6-foot-3 point guard from Laramie (Wy.) County Community College where he was named all-region.

A Brookeville, Md. native, Peppers averaged 18.7 points, 3.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds last season. He shot 36.8 percent from the floor, including 36.6 percent on 3s (74 of 202), and 82.6 percent at the foul line.

Peppers had 10 20-point games as a sophomore and twice scored over 30 points in a game, including a season-high 39 points in a victory over Northeastern (Wy.) Junior College.

Gary Waters' recruiting wishlist includes adding a second point guard, a big and a wing/forward.

CSU is still setting up visits.

Canadian point guard Kasheem "Kash" Thomas is expected to visit CSU's campus on Thursday, according to his AAU program.

Thomas, who holds an offer from CSU, is from Ch√Ęteauguay, Quebec. He comes from the same AAU program that has produced CSU walk-on freshmen Daniel Levitt.

The 5-foot-11 point guard played last season for Champlain Saint-Lambert College in Quebec where he was named all-Canadian for the second straight year.

Another point guard, Jay McMiller of Horton (Mich.) Hanover-Horton High School, is also expected to visit CSU this month.

McMiller, 6-foot-4, holds offers from CSU, Eastern Illinois and Wright State.
