Whitehead Opts for NCAA
YC basketball player, Tom Whitehead, will forego his sophomore season to enroll in an NCAA Division I institution yet to be determined.
His decision comes after the governing board of the organization granted a release based on his graduation from Yavapai College this past summer.
In his only season at Yavapai, Whitehead was named ACCAC Freshman of the Year, All-ACCAC 1st Team and NJCAA All-Region I 1st Team. He led the team in scoring and rebounding, while finishing 2nd and 8th respectively in those categories in the conference.
Yavapai opens up the season, November 2nd against Grand Canyon JV in the Storm Center on the campus of Yavapai College in Prescott.
