Warrior Men’s Basketball Inks Three Standouts for 2022-23 Season

LEWISTON, Idaho – LC State Men’s Basketball announced the addition of three more difference makers ahead of the 2022-23 season. Anthony Peoples Jr., Erick Chaney, and Quentin Raynor will join the Warriors in the fall. 


“Very appreciative of the proactive work and time that our assistant coaches invested in this recruiting class,” Head Coach Austin Johnson said. “They did an unbelievable job of identifying the right players and building authentic relationships that allowed us to sign a group of student-athletes that we’re excited about. We believe that, along with our returners, this recruiting class can continue to push this program forward as we strive to compete at a high level together.” 

Peoples, a redshirt freshman transfer from The Master’s, comes to LC State from Eastvale, Calif., and Corona’s Centennial High School. He was part of the Huskies’ 2021 CIF State Championship team. The 6-9 forward sat out the past season at TMU to rehab an injury. 

“I chose LC because of the great coaching staff and welcoming environment,” Peoples said. “I really enjoyed being around the guys on the team. I also believe being at LC best helps me have the opportunity to pursue a national title and a chance to play professionally after college.” 

“We have high expectations for AP as he continues to get healthy and adjust to the college game Johnson said. “He has untapped potential as a player and competitor and we’re excited about seeing him grow on and off the court. There are a lot of great things to say about his basketball ability, but AP’s greatest asset is who he is as a teammate and how much he cares about seeing others be successful. Those intangibles, combined with his physical talent, should help him maximize his opportunities as a championship athlete.” 

Chaney, a 6-0 guard, joins the Warriors after a standout high school career at Bakersfield Christian High School in Bakersfield, Calif., where he was a two-time All-South Yosemite League selection. He helped the Eagles to two Central Section Championships and averaged 18 points, three assists and two rebounds per game as a senior. He made an impressive 83 3-pointers at a clip of 38 percent. 

“I chose LC because I felt like the coaches believed in me and that it was the best place to improve my game in such an established program,” Chaney said. “As a student-athlete, you want to play for a program that competes for championships and is nationally ranked every year; it was a no-brainer.” 

“Erick stood out to us due to his shooting ability and love of the game,” Johnson said. “Erick wants to maximize his experience and career as a student-athlete and that’s something that’s important to us as we work to develop our roster. Erick has played in high-level games with and against good players and doesn’t shy away from big moments. We’re excited to see him develop and gain experience here at LC.” 

Raynor brings the most experience of the three as a junior transfer from Yakima Valley College. As a sophomore, the 6-1 guard helped lead the Yaks to the 2022 NWAC Tournament Championship. During his two-year career at YVC, he averaged 15.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game while helping his team win a combined 40 games.

Throughout his career, Raynor established himself as one of the best shooters at the junior college level with 210 3-pointers at an eye-popping 43.8 percent. 

“I chose LC because I wanted to be a part of a family-oriented program that’s also a winning program,” Raynor said. “I felt that the coaching staff genuinely cared for their players and also loved the game as much as I do. It feels like a perfect fit and I am excited to get to work.” 

“Very excited about Q joining us and what he brings in regards to his skill set and experience,” Johnson said. “We needed to add shooting to this incoming recruiting class and statistically there aren’t many people better at that than Q has been. He has an innate ability to move without the ball and space the floor which will also create more space for his teammates. He’s a high-IQ player that really understands the ebbs and flows that happen throughout the game.”
