(St. Stephens, WY) – St. Stephen’s senior Jordan Barraza has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball for the Central Wyoming College Rustlers next fall.
The 6-4 senior led the entire state, in all four divisions of prep basketball, in scoring for the Eagles. Barazza averaged almost 30 points per game, while snagging eight rebounds per contest and recording four blocked shots per game.
As an Eagle he was a two-time member of the Class 1-A All-State team. A prolific scorer all over the court, he was adept at step through moves near the basket, had the range to hit pull-up 3-point shots, and had the ball handling ability to dribble penetrate against opposing defenses.
At Central Wyoming he expects to play the two-guard position.
“In high school, I was always the tallest guy so I have to post up, and play inside on the block,” Barraza said.
His ball handling abilities will come into play at the next level where his 6-4 frame will come in handy playing the perimeter position. He’ll have to add a few pounds for the college game, which is much more brutal than Wyoming High School style.
He has not chosen a major yet.
Barraza is the son of Jordan Sr. and Nicole Barraza.
