Garrett, 21, signed a letter of intent with the Spartans last week. Six players on SLCC's team averaged between eight and 10.6 ppg. last season.

"Louis will be a very good addition to our program, said SJSU coach George Nessman.

Garrett played his freshman season at the College of Southern Idaho in 2008-09 before going on an LDS Church mission to Borneo.

He was a two-time first-team all-state selection at St. George's Pine View High.
