Georgia State has picked up a couple of North Carolina junior college players, adding to what it calls “perhaps the most highly-regarded signing class in school history.”
Panthers coach Rod Barnes has signed Jamar Taylor, a 6-foot-8 forward, and Mi’kyel Nero, a 6-4 guard, from Brunswick Community College in Supply, about 25 miles southwest of Wilmington.
“Jamar Taylor and Mi’kyel Nero are excellent additions to our program,” Barnes said in a statement released by the school. “Coach [Walter] Shaw runs a strong program at Brunswick, so these two young men have been well-coached and are ready to contribute at the Division I level.
Nero, who will have three years of eligibility left at GSU, averaged 10.8 points a game at Brunswick last season. Taylor, who will have two years left, averaged 8.1 points and 6.7 rebounds.
