LOGAN, Utah - Former Utah State All-American Jaycee Carroll has signed a one-year contract to play professional basketball in Italy for Siviglia Wear Teramo. He will report to the team August 25 for a physical.

Carroll did have offers from both Toronto and Phoenix of the NBA to participate in their fall camps, but neither offer came with any guarantees.

Carroll, who graduated from Utah State this past spring with a bachelor's degree in Spanish, was a two-time Associated Press honorable mention All-American and the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year in 2008 as he averaged 22.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. Carroll finished his senior season leading the nation in three-point shooting at 49.8 percent, was second in the nation in free throw shooting at 91.9 percent and 13th in scoring. He also ranked 10th in the WAC in field goal percentage at 52.6 percent.

For his career, Carroll ranks fourth all-time in NCAA history in three-point shooting at 46.5 percent, is 12th in three-pointers made with 369, and 52nd in scoring with 2,522 points. He also holds 10 school records at Utah State, including being USU's all-time leading scorer.
