New UTEP men’s basketball head coach Joe Golding announced his second recruit as Jorell Saterfield, a 6-foot-4 transfer from Ranger College, signed a letter of intent to play for the Miners on Monday afternoon.
“Jorell is a fantastic player. He can score the ball multiple ways and can really defend. But most importantly, he’s the kind of kid who fits the culture of what we’re trying to do to build this program,” Head Coach Joe Golding shared.
“He’s a fantastic person and on top of that. He’s a local guy we’re excited about and hopefully brings the same energy and enthusiasm to the program that we have for him.”
Saterfield is no stranger to the borderland after playing his high school hoops in Las Cruces at Mayfield High
Saterfield will have three years of eligibility to play due to COVID free year.
