UC Santa Barbara GauchosGrant Troutt | 6′-2″ | PG | Episcopal School (TX) Jarriesse Blackmon | 6′-6″ | PF | Layton (UT)
The Gauchos announced the signing of a duo of players during the early signing period, which accounts for the departure of two seniors from the 2014-2015 roster. Texas point guard Grant Troutt played on Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League circuit and should come to the UC Santa Barbara campus as battle tested. He has the size and shooting range to help him be a factor on the offense end of the floor. A 210-pound combo forward, Jarriesse Blackmon brings versatility and flexibility to the roster with his addition. Head coach Bob Williams stated Blackmon is a good rebounder and defender, and is the type of player who has found success in the program in the past.
