Chamaje Barideaux, a 5-foot-11 shooting guard from New Iberia, Louisiana, is the latest player to sign a letter of intent to continue his education and men's basketball career at McPherson College, head coach Tim Swartzendruber has announced.
"There are a lot of things that make signing Chamaje special," remarked Swartzendruber. "First, he comes highly recommended from one of our former star players, Marlon Dominique. Second, Chamaje's high school coach was Marlon's high school coach, and third, he is an extremely talented player. Chamaje will compete for varsity minutes as a freshman. He is good and I am very excited to have him join McPherson College and our basketball program."
