RENO, Nev. - University of Nevada head men’s basketball coach David Carter has signed D.J. Fenner to a National Letter of Intent to play for the Wolf Pack next season. Fenner is 6-6, shooting guard from Seattle Prep in Seattle, Wash.

In the state title game he scored a team-high 26 points making seven-of-14 shots including two-of-three from behind the arc and five-of-six free throw attempts.
He was a first-team All-State selection and second-team All-Metro league pick as a junior. In his freshman season he earned first-team All-Metro league honors after averaging 17 points per game. As a sophomore he played his prep basketball at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C..
He enters his senior season 80 points from 1,000 in his three-year career at Seattle Prep.
