HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The HU men’s basketball program has announced the signing of Waverly High School standout Jaden Sutton. |

Sutton did a little bit of everything for the Warriors this past season by averaging 17.5 points, 4.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals per night and for his efforts received his third CAAC Red All-Conference honor.

The 5-9 point guard has accumulated more than his fair share of honors and awards during his prep career which includes being named a member of the Lansing State Journal All-Area Team twice. He was also selected to the Lansing State Journal Dream Team and earned Honorable Mention All-State honors by the Associated Press and Detroit Free Press.

Sutton has also been honored by his local media as a 6 News Player of the Week in addition to serving as a 92.1 The Team First Team All-Area pick.

"We are very glad Jaden is going to be a Forester,” said Head Coach Ty Platt. “He is not only a very good athlete and basketball player but is a great, Christian young man who will represent our basketball program and school very well.

"We are excited to see the development Jaden makes and the impact he will have on our team."

Jaden is the son of Jemar and Stacey Sutton of Lansing, Michigan.
