Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye signs with Bradley University

 

Bristol Flyers and former England U18 guard, signs with NCAA Division One school on full athletic scholarship for 2015-16 season.

The 63″ combo guard is likely be involved with the GB U20s in the European Championship in Italy this summer. Dwayne will depart the UK after impressing with his play in the BBL, helping Flyers to the play-offs in just their debut season.

“It's always been a dream of mine and I've always wanted to play in America. I'm excited to say I am fulfilling my dream and playing at a very good school, in a very good conference"

Lautier-Ogunleye has averaged 8.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists during regular-season games in the BBL this year. In his last four games, he has averaged 13.3 points per game.

Dwayne will be playing under Bradleys new Head Coach, Brian Wardle, who coached current teammate Bree Perine at Green Bay Phoenix. Wardle has helped produce multiple pro-players in the NBA and across Europe.

“I will learn a lot and I really feel I can improve and excel in the four years I will train under him" 

Lautier-Ogunleye, originally from London, moved to Bristol three seasons ago to play for the Flyers

In Dwayne, we have a strong, physical combo guard that can play with the ball in his hands and make plays,” Bradley new Head Coach, Wardle said.

He can play the point guard, he can move off the ball and score and hes definitely a play-maker on both ends of the floor. Hes also a very good shooter and he is shooting over 30 percent in a pro league from a further 3-point line. We feel he can come in and contribute right away and make shots for us.

Bristol Flyers will undoubtedly miss his talent on the court. 

"We are very proud of Dwayne and what he has achieved in his three years with our basketball programme.” said Flyers Head Coach Andreas Kapoulas. Both the SGS basketball academy and the Bristol Flyers Basketball Club have offered him the opportunity to develop his game to the next level and he has made the most of it. We really believe in him, he is ready for it and we look forward to following his progress and success with Bradley University.
