GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota men’s basketball head coach Brian Jones announced the addition of Jamal Webb to the Fighting Sioux roster for the 2010-11 season on Wednesday. Webb signed his National Letter of Intent on Tuesday to play for UND this upcoming season.

A six-foot-three point guard out of Buffalo East (N.Y.) High School, Webb attended Carolina Tech Preparatory School in Charlotte, N.C., after graduating in 2008. During his career at the prep school, Webb averaged over 20 points and 10 assists per game for head coach Anthony Anderson.

“Jamal is going to be a great fit for our team,” Jones said. “He has a great personality and is a high-character kid. With him and Aaron (Anderson) coming in, we now have two legitimate point guards on our roster and he is talented enough to where he can play off the ball as well. He is the type of player who can control a game and really make his teammates better.”

Webb registered numerous accolades in his three seasons for head coach Starling Bryant at Buffalo East, including being named the Yale Cup Player of the Year as a junior and senior. 

As a senior, he was named to the 2008 All-Western New York first team by the Buffalo News and a second team Class A All-State selection by the New York State Sportswriters Association. Webb earned third team All-Western New York accolades as a junior and honorable mention honors as a sophomore. 

Webb plans to major in electrical engineering at UND. He joins fellow signees Aaron Anderson (Osseo, Minn.) and Troy Huff (Brookfield, Wis.) to round out the 2009-10 signing class.
