Men's Basketball Signs Three-Star Guard From Las Vegas

April 24, 2014

San Jose, Calif.—For the second consecutive season, San Jose State University men’s basketball coach Dave Wojcik has signed a three-star guard.  Darryl Gaynor Jr., a 6-2 guard from Durango High School in Las Vegas, has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play for San Jose State beginning with the 2014-15 season.

Gaynor is ranked as a three-star player by Scout and a two-star player by ESPN at point guard.  He played his senior season at Durango High School where he averaged a state-best 24.9 points per game, grabbed 6.5 rebounds per game and dished out three assists per game. The second team all-state honoree led his team to the Division I Sunset Regional semifinal game after scoring 32 points in the Trailblazers 76-71 win over Cimarron-Memorial in the quarterfinals.  He was a first team All-Sunset Region and All-Northwest Division honoree.  Gaynor played his first three seasons at Palo Verde High School.

“We are excited about Darryl becoming the newest member of the Spartan family”, said Wojcik.  “Darryl is a tough, hard-nose, attack-minded guard that led the state of Nevada in scoring.  We have been looking for a player like Darryl all year, and we found our match.  Darryl will be a great ambassador for the Spartan basketball program.”
