WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Kedrick Flomo of North Forsyth liked his weekend visit to Murray State enough to sign a letter of intent Sunday to play basketball for the Racers, according to Coach Sean Vestal of North.

Flomo — a 6-2 guard and the 2014 winner of the Frank Spencer Award as the Journal’s boys player of the year — originally signed with Appalachian State last fall but requested and received his release after a coaching change.

Jason Capel, ASU’s coach when Flomo signed, did not have his contract renewed.

Jim Fox, a longtime assistant at Davidson, eventually was hired to replace Capel. Fox came to Winston-Salem on April 12 and met with Flomo and Vestal before agreeing to Flomo’s request for a release.

Flomo averaged 30.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists as a senior and shot 78 percent from the foul line. He scored at least 21 points in 18 consecutive games, including 48 of North’s 54 in a win against Asheboro, and finished his career with more than 2,200 points.

In addition to winning the Spencer Award this past season, Flomo was an Associated Press all-state selection, the player of the year in the Mid-Piedmont 3-A Conference and an all-district selection by the N.C. Basketball Coaches Association.

Flomo could not be reached for comment Sunday.

Murray State, in Murray, Ky., finished 23-11 overall last season, including 13-3 in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Racers also won their last five games to win the tournament, defeating Yale 65-57 in the championship game.
