Jeremy McKay, a 5-10, 180-pound scoring guard from Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, Ala., has signed a letter-of-intent to attend Sam Houston State University and play men's basketball for Bearkat head coach Jason Hooten.

McKay earned NJCAA Division I All-America honors this year. The Headland, Ala., product paced the Wallace State team with 15.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. He shot 43 percent from the field and 37 percent from three point range. He totaled 87 three-point baskets, 87 assists and 53 steals.

 "Jeremy is a really athletic shot-maker and scorer," Hooten said. "He is an excellent student and a young man with high character. Jeremy is a dynamic player who not only can create shots for himself but for his teammates."

McKay was a first team All-Alabama Community College Northern Conference and All-NJCAA Region 22 selection. He led the Lions as they won the program's second state junior college championship, winning four games in four days to advance to the national tournament as the conference's number six seed.

"Jeremy is the third player from our program to earn All-America honors and it was a great way to cap off his Wallace State career," Lions coach John Meeks said. "Jeremy had a great sophomore season and was a catalyst for us all year, especially during the stretch run in the postseason. He is a phenomenal kid who has been active on campus and is loved by his instructors. He has worked hard academically and is the perfect character player for any program."

As a senior at Headland High School, McKay was an all-region selection after averaging 22.1 points and 5.2 rebounds and 8.3 assists.
