NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The number of Tennessee State men’s basketball commitments has now reached double-digits, as Montez Loman (Boiling Spring Lakes, N.C.) has signed a Letter of Intent to play for Dana Ford this upcoming season.
“Montez is a combo forward who is blessed with incredible athleticism,” Ford said. “He has a seven-foot-two wingspan and I like his ability to score around the basket and alter shots. He also has a tremendous motor and energy level, and I look forward to bringing him into the program.”
Loman will have two years of eligibility left as he has spent the last two seasons playing for Brunswick Community College in Supply, N.C.
The six-foot-six small forward started 29 of 32 games as a freshman, shot 50-percent from the floor, led the team in blocked shots and ranked second in rebounding. He averaged 6.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.3 steals per game.
He contributed more as a sophomore as he led the Dolphins in rebounding, blocked shots and steals while also ranking among the top scorers. He averaged 10.1 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.1 blocks and 1.6 steals to earn second-team all-region honors and the Region 10 Defensive Player of the Year award.
