Men’s basketball: Louisiana’s Class 5A MVP signs with UNT

Greg White-Pittman, a 6-foot-2 combo guard from New Orleans Holy Cross, has signed a national letter of intent with North Texas, coach Tony Benford announced Monday.

White-Pittman was the Louisiana Sportswriters Association Class 5A MVP last season, when he averaged 25.6 points a game.

The senior originally committed to Tulane before backing off that pledge. White-Pittman visited UNT last week and committed late Friday night.

“Greg can play the point or shooting guard positions, and he will see the floor right away,” Benford said in a prepared statement. “He has an unmatched ability to score the basketball and create opportunities for his teamamtes, and he’s a solid defender.”

White-Pittman is the sixth member of UNT’s 2014 signing class that also includes Tyler Junior College guards Todd Eaglin and DeAndre Harris, San Jacinto College guard Carrington Ward, Gillette County College forward Muhammed Ahmed and Dallas Carter forward Jeremy Combs.

Former Arlington Seguin forward Greg Wesley is also expected to be available after sitting out last season to gain his academic eligibility.
