WSC men’s basketball signs four


Wayne State men’s basketball coach Jeff Kaminsky announced the signing Tuesday of four student-athletes to national letters of intent during the national signing period for the 2023-24 school year.
The signing class includes Zach Anderson of Sherburn, Minn., JJ Ferrin from Omaha, Aiden Sullivan of Olathe, Kan., and Wade Voss from Lincoln.

“This is a great week for the future of Wayne State basketball,” Kaminsky said. “All four players have extremely high character and have experience success on and off the court and in the classroom. They are skilled and come from successful high school programs. We really value talented competitors who are great teammates. Not only is that true of all four of our recruits but they also fill the specific needs that we targeted in this class. Our staff and entire program are excited about the announcement of this talented recruiting class.”
