JucoJunction was in attendance this past weekend at Kenn Littlefields Southeast Jamboree in Jonesboro, G.A. on Saturday. This year's Jamboree was pretty good from top to bottom in talent. JucoJunction takes a closer look at one squad who added some key transfers for this season to make a run for the region championship this season in this article.
Chattanooga State Community College went out this off season and added some transfers to the picture plus also brought back 6-foot-10 Philip Jurick to the fold. Jurick had committed to go to Chattanooga last season but fell short of graduation this past summer.
Jurick, now a third year player, started his career at the University of Tennessee as a redshirt player. Jurick is currently a third year player and will have to have 60 percent towards his degree and will have to graduate.
Jurick averaged 12.4 points and 10.5 rebounds last season while swatting 4 blocks a night for the Tigers.
The Tigers added two transfers from Northwest Florida State College in the Panhandle Conference. Latraius Mosley and Michael Robertson will both see solid minutes this season for the Tigers.
Mosley, a small forward, averaged 9.4 points and 3.8 rebounds per game last season while shooting 40 percent (43-107) from 3-point range. "Latraius has a sleek frame who can really slash to the basket or hit the three ball from distance," said JucoJunction Publisher Bret Swanson.
Robertson should really have a chance to improve on his numbers from last season. Michael averaged just 2.8 points and 2.6 rebounds per game for the Raiders last season. Robertson a left-handed power forward from Birmingham,AL has received early interest from Troy University.
