Coach Nowell had this to say about Austin: "I'm extremly excited to add a player like Austin to next year's team! He's exactly the type of person I try to recruit. He's a great kid, a hard-worker, and a natural born leader. He's an outstanding basketball player that will instantly make us better. I can't wait to see what the next four years have in store for Austin and for the men's basketball program!"
