Westminster basketball added a third member to its recruiting class Tuesday, with the signing of 6-foot guard Blake Skidmore, a Mud Lake, Idaho native.

Skidmore previously played at Big Bend Community College, where he averaged 24.2 points per game and was the co-MVP of the Eastern Region and set an NWAACC Tournament record by scoring 21 points per game in the postseason. As a high school senior at West Jefferson High School, Skidmore averaged 30 points per game and was named the Idaho 2A Player of the Year.

"Blake is a high-end recruit for our program," Hiatt commented. "He is a prolific scorer and an outstanding student. He will make our team better from the moment he steps on the court with us. I expect Blake to make a significant imprint on our program over his final two years."
