Bristol Flyers have acquired American point guard Jalan McCloud on a one-year deal.
The 5ft11in playmaker has put pen-to-paper on his first professional contract out of East Tennessee State University, where he averaged 11.8 points, 3.5 assists and 1.1 steals per game.
Last season McCloud was named in the NABC All-District second team, the All-SoCon third team, the SoCon first team All-Tournament and the SoCon All-Conference second team.
"I’m very excited - It’s a dream come true,” he told bristolflyers.co.uk.
Speaking on his latest addition, head coach Andreas Kapoulas said: “Jalan is a very exciting player who has a proven track record in NCAA division one.
“He will add speed, skill and experience at the point guard spot and he can play on both ends of the court - that’s been a primary focus in terms of our recruitment this year.
“We are certain that Jalan will bring leadership and pace into our play, but most importantly he will bring that backcourt ability and winning mentality that is required to be successful in the BBL.”
McCloud becomes the tenth player to commit to Bristol Flyers for the 2018/19 campaign, joining Daniel Edozie, Tevin Falzon, Justin Gray, Fred Thomas, Marcus Delpeche, Panos Mayindombe, Jordan Nicholls, Chris Taylor and Lewis Champion.
One of the standout results of the 2018/19 campaign was undoubtedly a 3-2 win over the Blades at Bramall Lane and supporters can watch the game back in its entirety this Monday evening (March 30th).
