"Stone adds an element to our roster that we haven't had since Alex Taylor. He provides something you can’t teach, which is size,” Garvin said. “We want to get him here during summer school and get him acclimated to our system and S.C. State. Out of high school, he averaged a double-double, and with more playing time and an opportunity, we feel we can get the same production.”

Northern Oklahoma Community College Coach Donnie Jackson said Stone is a great teammate who brought consistent effort.
