Linder on Pangonis
“We’re ecstatic to welcome Dom to the Cowboy family. Dom comes from a winning background in Canada, being a product of an exceptional prep program in Polaris Prep and AAU program in Canada Elite. He has been coached at a high level and we have seen him improve immensely from year to year…which tells us so much about his upside and desire to be great.
Dom brings great size, length, shooting and athleticism to the program. He has a motor that doesn’t stop running and is always looking to make the “winning” play. He also has an innate ability to process the game quickly and effectively, to make plays that not every player sees. Dom has the type of character and strong academic background that we strive to fill our locker room with. We can’t wait to have Dom’s mix of size and feel for the game at the guard spot in the Cowboy program for the next four years.”
Jehvion Starwood – Oswego, Ill. – 6-3, 180-pound, Guard
Starwood is listed as a three-star recruit by Rivals and 247Sports.com. He is the No. 15 recruit in the State of Illinois and 247Sports.com listed him as the No. 42 ranked guard in the class. He led his team to a sectional championship and a 29-6 record as a junior at Oswego East High School. Last season, he averaged 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. He was also recruited by Illinois State, Southern Illinois, Miami of Ohio, San Jose State and Denver.
Linder on Starwood
“We’re excited about the signing of Jehvion for the 2024 class. Jehvion brings a blend of elite athleticism, play-making ability and size to the lead guard position. His upside and bright future make him such an exciting prospect. When you add in his ability to get to spots and create angles that may not have been easily apparent with his explosiveness, you have big plays just waiting to happen. He possesses a great ability to score the ball at all three levels and a willingness to make the right play for his team.
Jehvion has won and excelled at every level he has competed at…from High School at Oswego East in Illinois to AAU basketball for the esteemed Illinois Wolves. We’re confident that he can bring some of that winning mindset to Laramie next fall.”
Dylan Warlick – Edmond, Okla. – 6-5, 180-pound, Forward
Warlick is listed as a three-star recruit by Rivals and 247Sports.com. He is ranked as the second-best recruit in the State of Oklahoma by 247Sports.com. The website also lists him the No. 65 best forward recruit in the nation. He has led Edmond North High School to back-to-back state titles. He was named All-State by the Oklahoman. He averaged over 20 points per game as a sophomore and as a junior scored 15.1 points and added 8.4 rebounds per game. He was recruited by Davidson, San Jose State, South Alabama and Abilene Christian.
Linder on Warlick
“We can’t wait to add Dylan Warlick to the Cowboy family. Dylan has been on our radar for some time after a great underclassman career in Oklahoma high school basketball. Having won multiple state championships at Edmond North High School, in the highest classification in Oklahoma, we knew there was something special about his will to win and ability to effect winning. Two traits that cannot be discounted. We loved his ability to elevate not only himself but his teammates and program as well. Dylan also had much success on the Nike EYBL circuit with Team Griffin, where he competed at an elite level, game-in and game-out.
Dylan brings a combination of toughness and skill to the wing position. He’s an exceptional scorer in the post and has a relentless mindset to rebound. His size and athleticism allow him to defend multiple positions and bring versatility to that end of the floor. We can’t wait for Dylan to bring his winning edge to Laramie in 2024.”
