PULLMAN, Wash. – Danny Lawhorn (Hartford, Conn./ San Jacinto College-Texas) has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Washington State University men's basketball team beginning with the 2013-14 season, head coach Ken Bone announced Wednesday.

"Danny comes from a very successful program and we look forward to him being an integral part of our program next year," Bone said. "I love his quickness and his ball handling. Maybe his best attributes, though, are his unselfishness and passing ability, which made him one of the top assist leaders nationwide the past two seasons."

Lawhorn (5-foot-10, Guard) played two seasons at San Jacinto College in Pasadena, Texas. As a sophomore in 2012-13, Lawhorn appeared in 30 games for the Coyotes, averaging 9.9 points and 8.43 assists in 33.3 minutes per game, ranking second in the NJCAA. Lawhorn helped lead San Jacinto College to a 24-6 overall mark and 14-5 record in Region XIV play, as the Coyotes advanced to the semifinals of the Region XIV tournament. At the conclusion of the season, Lawhorn was named third team all-Region and second team all-conference, as well as to the Region XIV all-tournament team.

As a freshman at San Jacinto College, Lawhorn averaged 9.2 points and 9.5 assists per game in 30 contests for the 23-7 Coyotes, leading the nation in assists. He earned second team all-Region and second team all-conference honors.

For his career, Lawhorn averaged 9.6 points and 9.0 assists per game while playing in 60 contests. His 538 total career assists rank him second all-time at San Jacinto College. Prior to attending San Jacinto College, Lawhorn attended Hartford Public High School and South Kent School, both in Connecticut, where he graduated in 2010.

Lawhorn joins an incoming class that includes incoming freshmen Josh Hawkinson (6-9, 220, PF, Shoreline, Wash./Shorewood HS) and Ikenna ‘Ike' Iroegbu (6-2, 190, G, Elk Grove, Calif./Oak Hill Academy).
