Nevada Adds Pitt Transfer Shamiel Stevenson

Nevada adds mid-season Pitt transfer Shamiel Stevenson to their roster. 

Stevenson comes from the University of Pittsburgh where he had much success his freshman year. The 6'6 guard/forward started 13 games as a freshman averaging 8.5 points per game. He added 4.4 rebounds per game and led the team with 141 total rebounds. He also led the team shooting 50.5% from the field. 

Not only has he had success on the court, he brings with him an Academic All-American accolade with him as well. 

"We are extremely excited to add a player like Shamiel to our program," Musselman said. "At 6-6, 245-pounds, and with his skill set, he will fit right in as a Jordan Caroline type player. He was one of the best players in the ACC in fouls drawn as a freshman, which is something that has always been a big part of our program, and shot a great percentage from inside and outside of the arc. He is the type of player we can put in multiple mismatch situations offensively because of his size and ability with the ball. We look forward to coaching a player like Shamiel."

We are thrilled to add a player that has had the success he did in the ACC Conference to our program. He will fit in and add the the culture we have established here at Nevada. 

The Toronto, Canada native will join the Pack at the beginning of the spring semester and sit out one year due to NCAA transfer rules. He will be able to practice with the team and will bring great competitiveness to every drill. He was rated the No. 34 small forward in the 2017 recruiting class by 247 Sports.  Stevenson averaged 14.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 blocks in his only season at Hillcrest Prep.

We looking forward to getting Shamiel on campus and having him join The Hunt!
