Quinton Ferrell has announced the signing of James Lovorn III (Anderson) to join the men’s basketball team next season.

Along with his shooting ability, James is a tremendous ball handler and passer. I love the grit and competitive edge James exudes on the court. He will be a tremendous addition to PC both academically and athletically, and I look forward to coaching James and having him and his entire family be a part of our program here at PC."
