No. 68 Jr SG Erik Stevenson Commits To Wichita St

247Sports’ No. 68 ranked high school junior shooting guard Erik Stevenson has committed to Wichita State.

 

The 6-4 guard averaged 19.5 points this season for Timberline HS (Lacey, WA), leading the team to the 3A state tournament.

 

The explosive Stevenson also poured in a school-record 45 points against rival North Thurston in December, and was named to the 3A South Sound Conference First-Team this year.

 

“It’s a great chance for me,” Stevenson told The Olympian.com of choosing the Shockers. “[Head] Coach [Gregg] Marshall is my type of guy. We both have the mindset to prove people wrong.”

 

“They said I was going to be just like [Wichita State great Ron Baker] and he’s in the NBA, and that’s my goal,” Stevenson added.

 

Stevenson’s Timberline HS coach Allen Thomas said the school is a perfect fit for his star guard.

 

“I think he made the best possible choice as far as a school goes,” said coach Thomas. “Their approach to basketball is very similar to how he wants to play — gritty.”

 

Scout loves Stevenson’s game.

 

“A versatile combo guard with a big motor,” reads Scout’s analysis. “Smooth stroke from outside but can also attack the rim and dunk.”

 

At Wichita State, Stevenson will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 34 SF Rodgerick Brown.

 

The Shockers beat out the likes of LSU, Washington and Utah to land Stevenson.
