Spots on the WKU 2013-14 men’s basketball roster are filling up fast.

Coach Ray Harper announced Thursday that the Toppers will add guard Trency Jackson to their roster next season, the second transfer to commit to joining the team in the past two weeks.

Jackson played for Texas Tech this season before being suspended due to a violation of team rules in January. He played in 12 games for the Red Raiders this season, starting in 11 of them, and averaged 6.6 points an 2.3 rebounds.

Since Jackson has already enrolled at WKU, he will be eligible to play for the Toppers at the end of the fall semester next season.

He and guard Chris Harrison-Docks, a transfer from Butler, will join the Toppers in December 2013. The Toppers have also signed Alassane Kah, a forward from Fishburne Military Academy who should have four years of eligibility, to join the team next season.

Only two players on WKU’s current roster will graduate after this season – senior point guard Jamal Crook and senior center Teeng Akol.

If Jackson is ruled eligible by the NCAA, he will be able to play for WKU for a year and a half.
