JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Bryan Hodgson continues to bolster the Arkansas State men’s basketball roster.

6′4″ combo guard Obadiah Curtis committed to the Red Wolves on Tuesday. He played his freshman season at Reedley College in California.

Curtis led the Tigers in scoring and rebounds, he averaged 19 points and 8 boards in the 2022-2023 season. The California native recorded 7 double-doubles. He had a pair of 30 point performances en-route to 1st Team accolades in the Central Valley Conference.

“Obadiah is an under-the-radar wing from the California Junior College league where he averaged almost 20 points per game,” A-State head coach Bryan Hodgson said in a release. “Obadiah has the chance to be a special player with a bright future. He has the tools and the stature to be an elite-level player on both sides of the ball. We look forward to developing Obadiah into a high-level two-way player in the Sun Belt Conference.”

According to The Portal Report, Pepperdine, UAPB, Chattanooga, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Central Washington, and CSU Pueblo were also in pursuit of Curtis.
