Clinton County guard Jackson Harlan has committed to WKU for the 2019 class, according to a report from Brad Stephens of the Bowling Green Daily News.

Harlan averaged 26.4 points per game last season for the Clinton County Bulldogs, who finished the season 18-13 and lost to Bowling Green High School in the Region Four tournament.

Harlan, who stands 6-foot-5, also averaged 4.1 rebounds per game and shot 47 percent from the floor. Harlan was an 83 percent free-throw shooter. 

Harlan earned his scholarship after attending WKU’s team camp last week. It was his first offer. He becomes the second player to commit to the Hilltoppers this week, with the first being 2018 five-star center Charles Bassey, from Louisville’s Aspire Academy.

Harlan is the first 2019 commit for WKU.
