Rayvon Witherspoon signs with USC Salkehatchie


Manning High School basketball standout Rayvon Witherspoon signed Friday to play basketball with the University of South Carolina Salkehatchie.

Witherspoon earned his 1,000th point during the 2015-16 varsity season, breaking the school's all-time record.

"By his final game, he had 1,142 points," said Coach Stevie Ward. "He played all positions on the team during his time with the Monarchs. He did a little bit of guard, center forward and this year he stayed at center forward."

Ward said Witherspoon had a "great ability when it comes to rebounding and shooting."

"He's a good all-around player," Ward said. "I think he will do well at Salkehatchie."

Ward said that Witherspoon, should he "improve his grades at his chosen school," could move up to a Division 1 school.

"My advice to him Friday was to not let this be his last signing," Ward said. "He could sign with a Division 1 school, and then go on to sign with the pros or the semi-pros. He shouldn't let this be the last one."
