FAU Men's Basketball to Add Jelani Floyd to 2011 Signing Class

Jelani Floyd, formerly a guard/forward at UC Davis, will join the Owls' roster for the 2011 season.

A native of Chicago, the 6-9 Floyd is versitile and will compliment this year's class consisting of Julian Sargent, Kelvin Penn, Omari Grier, and transfer Dragan Sekelic.

After injury sidelined his first year at Brown, Floyd sat a year due to NCAA transfer rules before returning to the floor at UC Davis, where he saw action in 30 games during the 2009-10 season and averaged 2.1 points and 1.4 rebounds.

Floyd will be assured one year, and possibly two, as an Owl.

Welcome Jelani!

Signing LOTS of big guys, just need two to hit as starters, and then build LOTS of depth!

Message from Jelani that he wanted to pass along…this young man is FIRST class:

"I am very excited and humbled to get another chance to play college ball and show the Owl community Coach Jarvis made no mistake. I have no stats, and have had a rocky career, but I can not tell you how blessed I am to be able to try and help this team. Its a true honor to be apart of this community."

Interested in seeing how Coach will use him given his solid ball handling skills at 6-9!

I also hope that by adding all these young big men that our Mr. White will be challanged to up HIS game and be the star player we all know and have seen he can be. I know we lost Rosyter but next year will be REAL interesting for the Owls if we can now bring big man after big man on the court just like the guards presently.
