CEDAR CITY, Utah - SUU head coach Todd Simon and the Thunderbird men's basketball program have announced the signing of Cameron Oluyitan to Southern Utah University.

Oluyitan is a 6' 7'' wing player originally from Sugarland, Texas, where he played for Clements High School. After a successful high school career, Oluyitan went to Gillette College in Wyoming, where he helped lead the team to a 35-2 record and a trip to the NJCAA National Tournament. While competing for Gillette he averaged 14.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

Following one season in the junior college ranks, Oluyitan transferred to Boise State for the 2016-17 season. He appeared in 17 games for the Broncos.

"Cameron will be a great addition to the Thunderbird basketball family,” coach Simon said about the signing. “He's a great young man that brings the ability to play multiple positions ad has a skill set that we can utilize in many different ways in our system. We could not be more excited to have him join our program."

Oluyitan will come to Southern Utah with two years of eligibility remaining, and will have to sit out the 2017-18 campaign due to NCAA transfer rules.

Oluyitan has a strong interest in pursuing a degree in communications, and hopes to be a coach after his playing career has come to a close.
