Valley City State University (VCSU) Head Men's Basketball Coach, Jeff Kaminsky, has announced that Quinton Peterson, of Centennial High School (Lino Lakes, MN) has recently signed a Letter of Intent to attend VCSU and join the Viking basketball program for the 2013-2014 season.

Peterson, a 6'8 Center, is having a successful senior season at Centennial High School, where he is averaging 10 points and 6 rebounds per game while shooting 55% from the floor. As a junior, Quin scored just over 9 points and grabbed 5 rebounds per game which earned him Honorable Mention All-Conference recognition in the Northwest Suburban Conference.

Brandon Mortenson, Quin's Head Coach at Centennial High School comments, 'Quin has great hands and feet, and very soft touch around the basket for a big post player. With added strength Quin can be a very good college post player. It will be enjoyable to follow Quin's career at Valley City State.'

Coach Kaminsky adds, 'We are excited to have Quin join our program. We believe he will be a great fit in our system. We are impressed with not only his ability to score and rebound, but his outstanding ability to pass the ball as well. Quin will have a positive impact on our program both on and off the court.'
