In 17-18 season, John Logan went an impressive 26-6 with a freshman PG, 6’1 David Sloan. Sloan averaged 12 points per game, 9.5 assists per game, 4.8 rebounds per game and 1.2 steals per game. He shot 48.4% from the floor and 38.7% from 3. Sloan has a great handle and the ability to make plays all over the court. He does a great job of setting up his teammates in great position to score. He is feisty defender and competes on every play. He is fearless when attacking the basket and can make shots from all over. Sloan has worked hard all offseason and now as a sophomore looking to be a leader for his John Logan teammates.
Head Coach Kyle Smithpeters said this about Sloan “Obviously David is an unbelievable playmaker. But I am mostly impressed with his continued leadership growth this offseason by the work he has put in off the floor, in the weight room, and in the class room.” Sloan’s playmaking ability has caught the eye of plenty of Division 1 programs like Iowa State & Virginia Tech who are the latest to reach out. Sloan has heard from several programs over the last month and new schools are calling every day. JucoRecruiting.com talked with Sloan recently and here are the highlights.
