Two College of Southern Idaho sophomores have made oral commitments to Division I programs this spring.
Guillaume Yango, a 6-8, 240 pound power forward from Martinique, West Indies, has committed to Pacific.
JUCO Junction confirmed this commitment with CSI Asst. Coach Jay Cyriac.
Yango visited Pacific, Idaho State and Tennessee-Martin this spring before reaching a decision. He had also considered Weber State but never visited the school.
Yango will sign with Pacific during the late signing period, which kicks off tomorrow, Apr. 16.
Yango averaged 4.7 points and 2.8 rebounds this season for the Golden Eagles, who finished 26-6. He logged an average of 10 minutes per game, starting just one of the 30 games he appeared in for CSI. He shot 60 percent from the floor and 76 percent from the foul line.
"He's an athletic 6-8 power forward that shows flashes of brilliance," Cyriac said. "Because of the guys who were playing ahead of him, he wasn't always able to show what he could do, but I think Pacific is a good fit for him."
The biggest knock on Yango is that he prefers to play a finesse game for a big man.
"He's skilled and can step out and shoot it," Cyriac said. "He needs to be more physical and aggressive."
The other CSI soph who has arrived at a decision is 6-2 point guard Ryan Davis of Berkeley, Calif. He has committed to Weber State.
Davis, who visited Weber State this past weekend, averaged 5.7 points and 3.4 assists per game. He started 28 of 32 games, logging an average of 23 minutes per contest.
Like Yango, Davis is expected to sign and send in his national letter of intent sometime during the late signing period.
