State Fair Community College Roadrunners Basketball Head Coach Matt Brown has announced the addition of Damaria Franklin from Chicago, Illinois, as the first member of the Roadrunners 2018-2019 recruiting class. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at SFCC.
Franklin, a 6'3" guard, played basketball at Niles North High School in Skokie, Illinois, for Head Coach Glenn Olson. Franklin was a three-year starter and a three-time all-conference player. He also earned all-state and all-area honors and was named a Wintrust Athlete of the Week by Wintrust Bank and NBS Sports Chicago.
"With Damaria's ability to get to the basket, he will be a welcome addition," said Brown. "He will help fill the void left in the back court because of the graduation of Christian Brown and A.J. Walker. He comes from a solid high school program at Niles North that faces good competition every year."
Franklin averaged 16.8 points and 9.5 rebounds per contest as a senior. He also registered 5.6 assists and 3.4 steals per game.
