Four-star guard Nah’Shon Hyland committed to VCU over UConn Tuesday afternoon, rounding out the Rams’ 2019 recruiting class.
Hyland filled the scholarship that former Rams freshman guard P.J. Byrd vacated after he transferred from VCU.
“Nah’Shon fits VCU Basketball,” coach Mike Rhoades said in a statement June 4. “He will bring great energy and ability, and will compliment our style of play.”
The 6-foot-3-inch guard will provide depth at the point for the Rams this season, who already have redshirt-senior guard Marcus Evans and incoming freshman guard Tre Clark on the roster.
Hyland was the sixth-best point guard in the 2019 recruiting class and in the top 75 overall, according to 24/7 Sports.
The Middletown, Delaware, native averaged 26.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists this past season for St. George’s Tech high school. He was named the 2019 Delaware Player of the Year by USA Today.
Hyland will join center Hason Ward and fellow guards Jarren McAllister and Clark in the Rams 2019 recruiting class.
