PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — The son of former NBA star Dennis Rodman has committed to play at Washington State.
DJ Rodman, a 6-foot-6 forward from San Juan Capistrano, California, is the latest player to join new coach Kyle Smith’s team.
“DJ is a shotmaker who has a really good feel for the game,” Smith said. “He was a very productive player displaying the ability to score and rebound at a high clip in one of the best high school leagues in California, the Trinity League.”
Rodman played two seasons at JSerra Catholic High School, where he averaged 24.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game as a senior.
Rodman is the son of Dennis Rodman, a five time NBA champion with the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls and was a two-time NBA All-Star.
Rodman is the sixth member of Smith’s first recruiting class, which includes Australian point guard Ryan Rapp, Ukrainian center Volodymyr Markovetskyy and Colorado State grad transfer Deion James.
