LOS ANGELES - LMU men's basketball Head Coach Max Good announced today that Kyron Cartwright of Compton High School has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend LMU and join the men's basketball program in the fall of 2014.

"Our main objective this recruiting period was to look for a very capable point guard," said Head Coach Max Good. "With Anthony Ireland graduating at the end of this season, it was a priority for us. We are very fortunate to have found a good one just down the street."

Cartwright, a 5-11 point guard, led Compton to a 20-11 record overall and a 9-3 mark in league play as a junior. They finished second in league play and advanced to the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section playoffs (Division 3AAA), defeating La Mirada, Beverly Hills and Calabasas before falling to eventual champion Tustin, 58-51.
