Presbyterian College and head men’s basketball head coach Gregg Nibert announced the signing of guard/forward Jo’Vontae Millner (Burlington, N.C.) to join the Blue Hose in the fall of 2016. He joins JC Younger, Armel TeTe, and Myles McGregor, who signed with PC earlier this year.

“We are very excited about our final signee Jo'Vontae Millner,” said Coach Nibert. “He comes from a great high school program and most respected high school coach Chas Criss. Coach Criss has been instrumental in developing him as a player but has also been there for him off the court. Jo’Vontae at 6'6 can play multiple positions and is very versatile with his abilities to score both inside and out.
