Maryknoll alumnus Josh Burnett, who graduated in 2014 before playing one year at a prep school in North Carolina, has accepted a full scholarship to play at Kennesaw State University this season.
Burnett, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard, was the Honolulu Star-Advertiser state player of the year as a senior, averaging close to 23 points and eight rebounds a game for the Spartans, who advanced to the state semifinals.
The Owls compete in the Atlantic Sun Conference and went 10-22 overall last year and 4-10 in league play.
Kennesaw State recently hired Al Skinner, who coached at Rhode Island and Boston College and is a two-time Big East coach of the year.
Burnett will be a true freshman and has four years of eligibility for the Owls.
