Washington State is in the midst of a run to the postseason NIT. Over the weekend, they picked up a player they hope contributes to future March runs in DJ Shelton.
Originally from Bakersfield, Calif., Shelton is a 6-foot-9 post who signed with Cal-State Fullerton out of high school.
Instead, Shelton took a tour through junior college where he attracted the attention of the Cougars and other staffs. He's a slender big who runs the floor and can step out and make short to medium range jumpers.
