Da’Vantre Vitor, a 6-foot, 2-inch combo guard from Lake Charles, Louisiana, has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Basketball team beginning this fall.
Vitor averaged 15.6 points per game as a point guard his senior season at Washington-Marion High School. He earned Class 4A All-State, first team all-district and District 4 MVP honors during his high school career.
He helped lead the Charging Indians to the state title game his junior and senior years, winning the championship his senior season.
“Da’Vantre fits very well with what we do and how we play,” Grizzly Basketball Head Coach Chris Popp said. “He is good individually, has the ability to break someone down, shoots it very well, and so on, but what excites me about him is his feel. He has a great pace, sees the game, and doesn’t just create for himself. He can really pass it.
“We want players with that individual talent who also can play well with other high level players,” the coach added. “He will be fun to watch, as well. Da’Vantre is an explosive athlete, fast and dynamic in transition.”
“I chose Missouri State-West Plains because they have been the most consistent recruiting me from day one, making me feel at home and comfortable,” Vitor said. “I feel like what Coach Popp is asking of me as a player is what I need and fits me.”
