Ladaris Green has signed a letter of intent to attend school at Dalton State College and play basketball for the Roadrunners and Head Coach Tony Ingle for the inaugural season of 2013-14. He is currently enrolled part-time at Dalton State and will be a full-time student starting in the spring semester of 2013.

Green, 6’10”, originally from Savannah, is already familiar with Coach Ingle, having played for him for two years at Kennesaw State University at the Division I level. During those two years, Green established himself as one of the top players in the Atlantic Sun Conference. In his sophomore season, he averaged 9.6 points per game, 8.5 rebounds per game, and was one of the league leaders in blocks with 54. In Kennesaw’s signature win in 2011 over Georgia Tech, Green recorded 19 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, and four blocks in 38 minutes in the Owls’ decisive 17 point win over the Yellow Jackets.

“It is an honor to be Coach Ingle’s first signee here at Dalton State,” said Green. “He is the major reason I am here, and I have great respect for him and am excited about being part of the Roadrunner basketball team.”

“I also know and like Coach Waugh from playing against him at Stetson and love the fact that the athletic department is full of coaches who know what they are doing,” Green said.

“At 6’10”, Ladaris is a versatile player who can play all five positions; we are excited to have him,`” said Coach Ingle.

Green sums up his goals at Dalton state as the following: “I want to be a role model for future student-athletes, both athletically and academically. My reception around campus has been incredible. From everything I have seen out of the athletic department, this whole situation is going to be extremely special and something that tons of players will want to be a part of, in all sports.”
