Let’s get to it. It appears Daquan Brown is a Friar!
He posted the following up on his Facebook account this afternoon:
Daquan Brown: It is in your moments of “decision” that your destiny is shaped!! and ive finalized my decision and next semester i will be attending providence. please no further questions.#headedtotheBigEastdotcom#
The 6’10″ Goliath could transfer in and play second semester, giving our front court a much needed body. Out of high school he was recruited by Miami, NC State, W.Va, Oklahoma and Pitt, and went through Fresno State and Barstow College. From my perspective this seems like a good fix to a desperate frontcourt situation, but the jury’s out on whether or not this transfer will be around for the semester to help out or last long term.
Other news circulating is Kiwi’s appeal being denied by the NCAA, though up for a second appeal right now. No confirmation on this and at this point all I can say is it’s speculation, but if the rumors hold true we’re looking at a very tough season on our backcourt who won’t have much to give them rest.
Because rumors are so fun, but hashtags are even more fun, here’s a rumor in hashtag form to on the upcoming recruiting class.
SEE YOU AT THE GAME!
