Shawnee Community College's Saints Men's Basketball starter Devin Thornton signed a National Letter of Intent to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville on Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
Thornton stands 6 feet 5 inches tall and will have two years of eligibility after completing two very impressive seasons at Shawnee Community College.
Coach John Sparks, Head Men's Basketball Coach at SCC stated, "Devin may be the hardest working player in our program. His commitment and discipline is second to none. He has really developed his leadership skills during his time at Shawnee Community College. Leadership is the type of skill that is transferable to life and he's going to do great things in the near future. I'm looking forward to Devin and his family starting the next chapter in his basketball and academic career and we are all so glad that we played a part in helping him realize his dream of playing basketball at the division one level."
As a sophomore, Devin is an Academic All-American candidate for the 2014-2015 season. As a two-year starter, Devin averaged 13 ppg, 6.3 rpg, and 2.4 apg and played during his two-year career at SCC.
