Trailblazers Ink Chipola Transfer Carter Skaggs

Vincennes, IN – After graduating one of the greatest 3-point shooters in Vincennes University Basketball history in Nate Hansen, the Trailblazers were in need of a shooter. This morning, VU filled that need with the signing of former Logansport High School stand-out, and Chipola transfer forward Carter Skaggs.

Skaggs is the son of Logansport High School Head Basketball Coach Pat Skaggs, and has proved throughout his career that he has the talent to be one of the best shooters around. Standing at 6’5”, 205 lbs, and with a lightning quick release, Skaggs managed to average 8 points a game and shot 43% from behind the 3-point stripe this season for the Indians. Before his freshman campaign at Chipola, Skaggs played a year for Bridgton Academy. As a high school athlete at Logansport High School, Skaggs averaged 16.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 block per game for the Berries. Skaggs also scored 1,587 points over his high school career, and sank 252 triples.

Coach Todd Franklin said of signing Skaggs, “We are excited to have him. We had a need for a big, wing shooter, and he without a doubt fills that role. He has a lot of the same skill sets as Mychal Mulder and Nate Hansen had, and he may have an even quicker release. He is a big time shooter, and we think he can really help us next season.”
