Yeh Chooses The Bulldogs

Bridgton Academy’s Warren Yeh announced over the weekend that he would be taking his talents to Alabama A&M, committing to a scholarship spot on the team.


Widely regarded as the top college prospect from Taiwan, Yeh’s introduction to New England was well-received among the crowd at the National Prep Showcase, as the 6’5” wing put on a special performance.


Yeh dropped 21 points on 7/14 shooting from the floor, hitting a number of clutch shots down the final stretch to send the game to overtime in a matchup with Fork Union.


The way he poured in the scoring was noticeable as he knocked down four three-pointers, hitting both standstill shots and shots off the dribble. He exhibits craftiness in his game as he uses his handle to create space from his defender and can release the ball quickly. Shooting is the focal point of his game, but his size and potential as a big guard are intriguing and will be interesting to watch develop in the SWAC.


Warren’s head coach at Bridgton Academy, Whit Lesure, had nothing but high praise for his potential as a Division One player: “Warren is a tremendous individual who came in here regarded as the best young talent in Taiwan. Like most new players to the prep world, his experience has been about adjustment and growth, particularly to the level of physicality. He had to sacrifice a lot this year, as did most of our very balanced roster,” speaking on the role Yeh played with the Wolverines this past season.


He went on to say, “He handled that extremely maturely. His ceiling is very high. Anyone who saw him in CT at the National Prep Showcase could see that. I believe this combination of talent and maturity will show dramatically in the years ahead as an extremely productive college player.”


Yeh played a strong role in Bridgton Academy’s stellar 20+ win season that landed them as the #5 seed in the NEPSAC-AAA playoffs, as well as a National Prep Championship berth this past March. As he continues to develop and acclimate to the American game, keep an eye on Yeh for the Alabama A&M Bulldogs.
