The University of Kentucky officially announced Wednesday that Jonny David and Dillon Pulliam have been added to the 2015-16 basketball roster as walk-ons.
David comes to Lexington after a productive senior year at Mount Lebanon High School in Pennsylvania, where he averaged 18.5 points per game last season. The 6-foot-2 guard earned all-state honors while leading Mount Lebanon to a sectional championship.
"I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the Kentucky basketball program," David said in a news release. "I'm also very excited to be a part of the Big Blue Nation and can't wait to see what the future holds for me and my teammates."
Never miss a local story.
Pulliam comes to Kentucky after playing last season at Transylvania University. He appeared in 25 games for the Pioneers, averaging 4.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.
The 6-3 guard was a five-year member of the varsity basketball team at Harrison County High School, and he finished his career there as the school's fifth all-time leader in scoring, third in three-point field goals and set a school record for most three-point field goals made in a game with nine.
Per NCAA transfer rules, Pulliam will sit out the 2015-16 season and be eligible starting in the fall of 2016.
"I'm excited to be a part of the UK basketball program and have the opportunity to play with other talented players under a great coaching staff," Pulliam said in the release. "Growing up in the state of Kentucky, I know how awesome Big Blue Nation is and I can't wait for the season to start."
