Fullerton, Calif. -
Bernard Webb, a 6-foot-9, 255-pound center from Salt Lake City Community College has signed a grant-in-aid to continue his basketball career at Cal State Fullerton in 2011-12.
Webb played in only 7 games last season due to a broken foot. He averaged 3 points and 1.6 rebounds for a 25-8 club. He played his freshman season in 2008-09 at Barton County Community College in Great Bend, Kansas, where he averaged 2.1 points and 2.3 rebounds for a 28-5 club. He sat out the 2009-10 season and will have two years to use his remaining two years of eligibility at Fullerton.
"He's a big body," said Assistant Coach Julius Hicks. "He's a good defender and rebounding type who will give us a presence in the paint."
Webb is from Bridgeport, Connecticut, but did not play in high school. His interscholastic playing career began at Genesis One Prep School in Mendenhall, Mississippi, where he attracted numerous college recruiters.
