WKU officially adds Queen to 2018 class

By  | 

Western Kentucky announced Wednesday the signing of Trevelin Queen, a 6-foot-6 guard to a national letter of intent for the 2018 class.

"We think Trevelin is a young man that has a high ceiling and brings a lot of ability to score the basketball in multiple ways," WKU coach Rick Stansbury said in a release. "We're excited to have him join our family. He hasn't had a lot of experience in his past, and that's why his best days lie ahead of him."

Queen, who's originally from Baltimore, will have two years of eligibility remaining following his transfer from New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, N.M.

Queen has scored 27, 25, 41 and 26 points in NMMI's first four games this season. He had made at least 10 field goals in each of his first three outings and is also averaging 4.5 rebounds per game.

He played last season at the College of Marin in Kentfield, Calif., where he averaged 21.3 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.4 steals per game. He shot 54.8 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from 3-point range.

Queen played his prep ball at North County High School in Glen Burnie, Md.
