Utah State officially made a late addition to its signing class on Thursday morning with Adam Thoseby, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Great Britain, who prepped this past season at Maine Central Institute, one of the premier prep schools in the country.

Thoseby is known as an excellent spot-up shooter, a kid who can put the ball on the floor and a player with excellent size for his position. He will come in and compete immediately for minutes in a backcourt that's suffered major depletion from last season.

"Adam is a player who possesses excellent athletic ability along with solid basketball skills," USU head coach Stew Morrill said. "He is a hard worker with very good potential and his international experience will certainly help his development as a player. We are excited to have Adam join our program."

At MCI, Thoseby averaged 7.3 points per game and shot 36 percent from three-point range on what was a team loaded with Division I prospects. He's also known as a good free-throw shooter.
