“We really like his size and versatility to play multiple positions,” WSU coach Scott Nagy said. “Jaylon is an explosive athlete who can hand the ball very well for his size. He is serious about his future on and off the court, which is a good fit for us. We also like that he has played for a successful high school program over the last three years, so he is used to winning.”

The Raiders signed guard Tyler Mitchell from Kings High School during the early signing period while guard Cole Gentry transferred to WSU from South Dakota State.

WSU finished 20-12 last season.
