WSU basketball signs Keith Langston to 2016 class

The well-traveled, unknown junior college guard will add depth to the backcourt.

NCAA Basketball: Utah at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Ernie Kent gave away one of his two remaining scholarships in the 2016 class to yet another under-the-radar player today when he signed junior college guard Keith Langston to a financial aid agreement, the school announced.

Langston has three years of eligibility remaining after redshirting this past season at Chabot College in Hayward, California. Prior to that, he scored just over 13 points per game and grabbed nearly six rebounds per game in his freshman season at Pasadena (California) City College.

All told, WSU will be the sixth school in six years for Langston. He also attended a prep school in Florida after finishing up his senior year at St. Vincent’s in Chicago, which came on the heels of spending his first three years at Whitney Young High School, also in Chicago.

From the limited clips on Hudl, Langston looks to have good length for a shooting guard and solid athleticism. Beyond that ... who knows. He was a two-star recruit once upon a time in high school, and ESPN.com remarked, “He is a natural scorer and is almost always in attack mode. He is a solid shooter with range to 20 feet. Langston has good length and solid athletic ability.”

However, this kid came from so far off the grid that not even the venerable verbalcommits.com has a profile of him yet.

Langston is the fifth member of Kent’s 2016 class, joining Jamar Ergas (6-4, 190), Malachi Flynn (6-1, 165), Milan Acquaah (6-2, 195) and Jeff Pollard (6-8, 235), who all have signed national letters of intent or financial aid agreements.

WSU has one scholarship remaining for the 2016-17 season.
