Lawson State Community College in Birmingham,AL is guided by Head Coach Phillip Shumpert. The Cougars played this past weekend in Marietta, GA at Kenn Littlefield's Southeast Jamboree. JucoJunction had a chance to see the Cougars freshman trio that will look to lead the squad this season. Read about the Cougars in this article.
Worrell Clahar, (FR) 5-foot-10 (180), is a point guard from Covington, GA via New York City. Clahar played last season at Sound Doctrine Christian Academy in LaGrange, GA under Head Coach Vacher Hammett.
"Worrell is a strong point guard for his size and a very pesky defender. Worrell really likes to attack the basket and he is a gamer; you never have to worry about him taking plays off," said JucoJunction staff anayst Bret Swanson.
Terrell Johnson, (FR) 6-foot-3 (200), hails from Hinesville, GA.
"Terrell is a very good skilled player who works his butt off all over the floor," said Swanson. "Johnson really likes to attack or stalk the baseline and he's very strong with the ball."
Tarvin Gaines, (FR) 6-foot-6 (210), is from West Memphis, AR. Gaines is a left-handed small forward. Gaines told JucoJunction that he is a qualifier and can leave with three years to play at the next level.
"Tarvin seems to be very comfortable from shooting the ball from midrange out to 15-17 feet," said Swanson.
