BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State University men’s basketball head coach Jason Capel has announced the addition of former Purdue forward Jacob Lawson (Reidsville, N.C./Oak Ridge Military) to the Mountaineer roster on Wednesday.
“We are really excited to add Jacob to our basketball program,” said Capel. “Jacob is a young man who comes from a great family and I feel will be big part of what we continue to build. He brings great athleticism to both ends of the court and the ability to change ends with great quickness. Defensively, Jacob will be a force for us with his knack for blocking and altering shots, his ability to defend multiple positions and rebounding the ball, both above the rim and out of his area.”
Lawson, who will sit out the 2013-14 season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules, will have two years of eligibility remaining after appearing in 58 games for Matt Painter’s Boilermakers over the past two seasons.
