Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.
Previous School: Los Angeles City College
CJ will be redshirting for our team this season with three years remaining beginning in 2010-2011. CJ is one of the most talented guards around. He is a great scorer. He understands how to get to the basket and is one of the best finishers that I have coached. On top of that, CJ can shoot it from just about anywhere. He can play both guard spots and will be a great addition to our rotation in 2010-2011.
