The Lincoln Christian University (LCU) men's basketball program welcomes it's most recent recruit signee this week in John Messer, a senior who starts at point guard for Indiana's #10 ranked (1A) Oregon-Davis High school.
"John is a guy who works hard to help the team be successful each time he's on the court," LCU Associate Head Coach Brady Cremeens said about the recruit. "He's someone who can play on both ends and has a true point guard mentality. He can score, but he's just as happy when he can assist one of his teammate's buckets. John is a great kid and we're looking forward to him joining us next year - both on the basketball team and in the student body."
John is averaging 15.3 points per game this season. His 3.9 steals per game is a mark that leads all of the 1A division in Indiana. He ranks fourth in the state with 5.3 assists per game, and his 57 percent shooting percentage is fourth in the state as well among guards.
"I chose LCU because of the Christian environment," John said. "I can't wait to start playing, meet new friends, and grow in my faith."
Welcome to the LCU family, John!
