Charlotte, NC - The Johnson & Wales Charlotte Men's Basketball program is proud to announce the signing of Devonte' Pettaway, a 6'1" guard from Pitt Community College in Greenville, NC.
Pettaway is the son of LaToya Banks and Devon Pettaway, and plans on majoring in Sports, Event, and Entertainment Management at JWU.
He averaged 7.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game for a Pitt CC team that advanced to the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in 2019. During his prep years at North Pitt HS, Devonte was selected for the prestigious East-West All Star game after averaging an incredible 29.9 points per game his senior season.
Head Men's Basketball Coach Dan Larkin is excited for what Pettaway brings to the team. "Devonte' has a competitive spirit that our program needs to continually perform on a national stage. He has a knack for getting to the rim that, when paired with his defensive intensity, will help our backcourt flourish. Could not be more excited to have Devonte' joining us in Charlotte!"
