Casper College’s Don Jarrett, Jr. has signed to play basketball at the University of Sioux Falls, a NCAA Division II school that competes in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

The 6’4” shooting guard from Waterbury, Connecticut, connected on 53 3-point field goals during the 2016-2017 season and 108 on his career as a Casper College Thunderbird. Jarrett was a main scoring threat for the Birds and averaged 10 points per game during last season. “We are going to miss DJ a lot for not only what he brought to us in games but what he did for our practices and culture,” said Thunderbird Head Basketball Coach Dan Russell.

“His ability to stretch the defense and be a solid perimeter defender for us night in and night out will be greatly missed. DJ is a great kid and someone I enjoyed being around and coaching for the last two years. His toughness will be hard to replace in this upcoming season,” Russell said of Jarrett who he referred to as “a gritty guard.”

Jarrett played both his freshman and sophomore years at Casper College and graduated in May 2017 with his Associate of Science degree in general studies. He contributed to all 49 wins the T-Birds had over the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 seasons as well as a Region IX title appearance in 2016.
