Junior college guard Jorell Saterfield averaged 12.1 points and 5.3 rebounds last season, while shooting 60-percent from the field and 40-percent from three for Ranger College (TX).
His Division I aspirations are that much closer, which is why his first Division I offer from Tarleton State was so special.
“It’s a great feeling,” he said of adding his first offer. “Because now I know I can play at the next level…playing at a Division I is a dream come true.”
Saterfield is very well known among the staff at Tarleton, as many of the coaches recruited him out of high school, while one coached him as well.
“Me and the coaching staff are close,” he explained. “Two of the coaches recruited me out of high school while they were at Southern Miss and coach Billy Gillespie coached me last year. So we’re really close.”
Saterfield said that he is known as a three level scorer and somene that can defend the one through four, while also being able to rebound at a high level. His final season at the junior college should be a good one as he looks to improve on a few things that should help him make the transition to the Division I level.
“By coming back to Ranger, I’m looking to become a better leader,” he said. “Be more vocal and everything else. There’s always room to improve.”
