Central Missouri Mules added Tristen Hull to a Grant-in-Aid for the 2019-20 season.
Hull, a native of Burbank, Calif., spent this past season at Highland (Kan.) CC where he helped the Scotties to a 28-3 record as a sophomore. The 6-7 forward finished the season with an average of 11.7 points per game. Hull’s best game came against Fort Scott Community College, scoring 21 points on 8 of 12 shooting from the floor.
“We’re ecstatic to add Tristen to our frontcourt,” Central Missouri coach Doug Karleskint said in a press release. “He’s very good around the basket, can face up and make plays away from the block, and does a great job finishing. He’s an exceptional athlete who can make an impact above the rim as well. We also expect him to make an impact on the glass, offensively and defensively.”
Hull led the Scotties in rebounding with an average of 5.6 per game. He reached double-figures in rebounds seven times on the season, with a high of 13 against State Fair. He also pulled down 55 offensive boards on the year.
“We love his toughness,” Karleskint said. “He’s a guy who isn’t afraid to do a lot of the little things that it takes to win games. He’s a very good passer who can make plays for others out of the post as well as facing up.”
As a standout at John Burroughs High School in Burbank, Hull was named first-team All-Area two times during his career. His senior season, he posted averages of 20.1 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game. He ended his career at Burroughs with over 1,000 points.
Hull will have two seasons of eligibility remaining for the Mules.
He joins 6-7 forward Dyllan Robinson of Des Moines Area CC, Kendale Hampton of Youngstown State and Dre Sorrells of Grandview HS as members of the Mules 2019 recruiting class.
