MISENHEIMER, N.C. - Pfeiffer University men’s basketball coach Jeremy Currier has announced today that Charlie Wagoner (Boonville, NC) has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Falcons beginning in 2013-14. A 6-foot-4 guard, Wagoner averaged 17.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, and two steals per game as a senior while leading North Forsyth High School to a 21-7 record.
North Forsyth head coach Sean Vestal said Wagoner is “probably the hardest working player that I have ever coached. He is a player that can do a lot on the basketball court. He can shoot, pass, rebound, play defense, and drive the ball to the basket. He is the smartest and strongest player I have ever coached.”
Wagoner scored over 1,000 points in his high school career and was named to the All-Conference team sophomore, junior and senior seasons, earned First Team All-District honors as a senior, named to the All Northwest Team, and participated in the Triad All Star game. Wagoner is a high honor student that carries a 4.6 grade point average, never earning below an A in four years of high school.
“Charlie is the kind of young man that we want representing Pfeiffer University and Pfeiffer Basketball,” said Currier. “His accountability in the classroom has been consistent and evident in his academic performance. His basketball talent, work ethic and team-oriented approach to the game are the kind of characteristics that make him a perfect fit for our program. He is a welcome addition to our roster.”
Pfeiffer will return 11 lettermen and four starters from the 2012-13 squad. Seven of the Falcons’ top eight scorers last season were freshman or sophomores.
