PULLMAN, Wash. – Keith Langston (6-5, 190, Guard – Chicago, Ill./Chabot College-Calif.) has signed a Financial Aid Agreement and will join the Washington State University men’s basketball program beginning with the 2016-17 season, head coach Ernie Kent announced Monday.
Langston attended Chabot College, a two-year school located in Hayward, Calif., during the 2015-16 school year, where he redshirted. Prior to that, Langston played one season at Pasadena City College in California. He began his high school career at Whitney Young High School in Chicago, Ill., where he attended his freshman through junior years, before transferring to St. Patrick High School, also in Chicago, for his senior season. Following high school, he spent the 2013-14 school year at Victory Rock Prep in Bradenton, Fla. At Pasadena City College, Langston averaged 13.3 points and 5.7 rebounds a game, while shooting 44 percent from the field. He was named All-South Coast Conference North at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season.
“We have continued to build our program around skilled basketball players, and Keith is another one of those,” Kent said. “Going into this off season, we knew we had to help strengthen our perimeter game. Keith is a good shooter with a great basketball IQ and will do just that for us.”
Langston will have three years of eligibility left at Washington State. He joins Jamar Ergas (6-4, 190, Guard, Toronto/Elite 1 Academy-Ariz.), Malachi Flynn (6-1, 165, Guard, Tacoma, Wash./Bellarmine Prep), Milan Acquaah (6-2, 195, Guard, Pasadena, Calif./Cathedral HS) and Jeff Pollard (6-8, 235, Forward, Bountiful Utah/Bountiful HS/Impact Academy), who each previously signed NLIs with the Cougars. WSU has one scholarship remaining for the 2016-17 season.
