UPDATED: The team blog has confirmed the signing. Kevin Souter will take Yomby William’s roster spot.
A brief update on prospective player Kevin Souter. The Graceland product does not appear on the team roster on the Wizards website, but today in an interview with the newest signing, Nelson Pizarro, Wizards PR man Dave Borchardt comments: “Nelson, an open tryout guy, we’ve got two of them now on the roster with you and Kevin…” Also, several contacts at Graceland have indicated that the word is spreading that he signed a contract.
Kevin was not listed for the last reserves game in Toronto on Saturday, but has been pictured at practice throughout the season. Emails sent on Thursday to Kevin and Wizards press officer Kyle Rogers were not responded to.
In related news, Kevin’s coach at Graceland, Ivan Joseph, resigned last week after 11 seasons to become an athletic director at Ryerson University in Toronto. Joseph was named NAIA National Coach of the Year in 2006 after winning the Yellow Jackets their first national championship.
