Austin Peay announced that Josh Ledbetter will be a walk-on to the basketball team this fall, raising the spring total for the Govs to five.
From Shepard Michigan, the 6 foot 6 forward had a productive senior season in which he averaged 14.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2 blocks.“Josh is a guy who had outstanding high school career, in particular, his senior season,” APSU coach Dave Loos said. In his senior seaon he earned postseason accolades by being named a member of the Tri-Valley Conference team and was a All-State honorable mention.
His senior season included six 20 point games and a season high 28.
“I think what he will have to do here is get in the weight room and improve his core strength, make the adjustment from high school to college basketball, especially the Division I level,” said Loos on what improvements Ledbetter needs. “We look forward to having him in our program and working with him. He could be a possible redshirt candidate, but we will see how it goes before making that determination.”
