Charlotte, NC -- David Bargamento, a 5'10" point guard from Coral Reef High School in Miami, FL will be joining the Wildcat Men's Basketball Team in 2014-2015. He is the son of David and Roslyn Bargamento. In addition to success on the basketball court, Bargamento has also demonstrated success in the classroom as he recently graduated from Coral Reef with academic honors. "I chose JWU because of the coaches, their full support of me, the location, and JWU is the best place for me to succeed. I look forward to taking this next step in life," said Bargamento at his signing.
Bargamento will add a proven ability to score, distribute the ball to his teammates, and defend after posting 16 points, 3.3 assists, and 1.9 steals per game in his senior campaign in 2013-2014. The numbers earned him All-District Honors for the season. "I am excited that David has decided to attend JWU because he is a true point guard that brings a high basketball IQ along with the ability to score and make others around him better," said Head Coach Jim Casciano. "He is a true competitor and will be an excellent leader during his career at JWU."
The 2014-2015 recruiting class continues to grow as more talented players are signing on to be Wildcats. Bargamento will compliment a Wildcat team that is bursting with potential and looks to post impressive numbers this season.
