Western Michigan men’s basketball added to its 2021 recruiting class with the late addition of Cameron Kimble, a guard from Las Vegas.
The team and head coach Clayton Bates announced the signing Tuesday, adding Kimble to a recruiting class that already includes Owen Lobsinger and Gus Etchison.
“We are excited to welcome Cam to Kalamazoo and the Bronco Basketball Family," Bates said in a press release. “Cam is a long and versatile athlete that handles the ball well and is an outstanding perimeter shooter."
Kimble attended Clark High School, where he averaged 12.4 points per game on 44% shooting from the field, 39% from three-point range and 78% at the free-throw line. He added 5.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
In the 2018-19 season, Kimble was named second team All-Conference while helping Clark High School to a State Championship Game appearance and a region championship. In 2019-20, he repeated as a second team All-Conference player and was named team MVP.
Kimble figures to slot in behind B. Artis White, Josiah Freeman and transfer Mack Smith and will compete with Adrian Martin, Daylan Hamilton and Etchison for playing time at guard. At 6’4, he could also find playing time as a small forward behind transfer Markeese Hastings.
