Former TCU forward Kevin Easley Jr. is officially a member of the Duquesne Dukes basketball program.
Keith Dambrot announced on Tuesday that Easley has enrolled at Duquesne and is officially a member of the program. Easley becomes the seventh new member of the Dukes Class of 2021.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
“Kevin gives us another proven scorer and rebounder,” said Dambrot. “He comes from a great high school program and has proven that he can rebound and score at this level. He shot it well at Chattanooga and I think the experience he gained at TCU will provide him with the hunger to take the next step. With the addition of Kevin and R.J. Gunn Jr. we have greatly improved our shooting at the four spot.”
Before joining TCU last season, Easley was the Southern Conference Freshman of the Year at Chattanooga. In 2018-19, Easley scored 14.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 28.1 minutes per game. Last season with Jamie Dixon and the Horn Frogs, Easley averaged 4.5 points and 3.7 rebounds in just under 20 minutes per game.
Easley becomes the 4th transfer and 7th overall new member of the Dukes program, joining Leon Ayers III (Mercer), Rodney Gunn Jr. (Lenior-Rhyne), Tre Williams (Indiana State), Andy Barba (Cleveland, Ohio), Jackie Johnson (Wichita, Kansas) and Primo Spears (Windsor, Connecticut).
