z-Evan Burton, 6’4″, 185, Guard, Sophomore

Evan BurtonIt was tough decision for Evan Burton to transfer from West Los Angeles College where he played last year but, he felt that he had to look to the future.  Burton knew that a transfer to AVC meant that he had to red shirt his 2017-18 season because of the transfer but he believed that in the long run it would be to his advantage.  Evan graduated from Hamilton High School in 2014.

Evan believes his transfer to AVC will improve his chance of getting a full ride university scholarship.  He looks forward to getting his academics in great shape, playing the style of AVC basketball and getting improved exposure to university scouts.

Mr. Burton knows that he must step up big time at AVC.  He believes that he can do that with his strengths in scoring and his mentality as a winner.  He expects that he will have to work hard to upgrade his defensive skills and in the weight room.
