San Diego State guard Keith Dinwiddie Jr. commits to Weber State men’s basketball
Weber State men’s basketball got its third addition this week when San Diego State guard Keith Dinwiddie Jr. announced his commitment to the Wildcats, posting his decision Wednesday evening on Instagram.
Dinwiddie played two seasons at SDSU and has three left to play. He was a three-star recruit out of Fairfax High School in Los Angeles and was rated a top-50 shooting guard nationally by 247 Sports. He chose San Diego State over offers from Washington State, TCU and Fresno State.
As a high school senior, Dinwiddie was named co-player of the year for both the All-City Open Division & All-CIF City Section in Los Angeles. In his two varsity seasons, Fairfax went 53-8 overall and 22-0 in league/region play.
The 6-foot guard appeared in 23 career games at SDSU and got somewhat lost behind experienced players like senior Jordan Schakel and those transferring into San Diego State such as Cal senior Matt Bradley, who was a first-team All-Mountain West selection last season and is returning next year for a fifth college season.
Dinwiddie’s top college performance came in January 2021 during a road win at Air Force where he shot 5 of 9 from the floor, including 3 of 6 from the 3-point line, to score 13 points in 13 minutes.
Dinwiddie is the first transfer commitment for Weber State this offseason after the Wildcats have already signed three freshmen: guard JJ Louden, wing Chris Dockery and wing/forward Louie Jordan.
WSU has four more scholarships available to add players to the 2022-23 roster, with senior Zahir Porter and third-year forward Dillon Jones leading the small group of returners.
