Former Auburn Knight Laytwan Porter will make his college debut Friday evening with the NIU Huskies. The Huskies will host Cal State Northridge in the NIU Showcase Open.
Porter was part of Auburn’s dynamic team that won 29 games last season. He was the starting point guard for the Knights. At NIU he’ll alternate at both guard positions off the bench.
How much action he’ll see is still to be determined, but he plans to be ready for any opportunity that comes along.
“I just want to come in as a leader on this team and just be effective on and off the court, you know, just leading players,” said Porter to Eyewitness News. “Whatever coach asks me then I’m going to do it. If it’s distributing the ball I’m going to do that. If it’s scoring them I’m going to do that also.”
