Kion Brown Commits to Radford
It took an extra year, but Kion Brown
has found a new home. On Sunday, the post-graduate made things official as he committed to Radford.
Originally a member of the Class of 2011, Brown chose to go to another year of prep school, in hopes of boosting his stock for college coaches. It is safe to say that decision was the right one.
Brown chose the Highlanders over Appalachian State, Wofford, Florida International, Hofstra, St. Bonaventure, and plenty of others.
"I appreciate all the other schools that recruited me, but Radford came the hardest," the 6-foot-7 forward began. "They were recruiting me for the longest."
Radford has been expressing interest in Brown for approximately a year now, but assistant JD Byers has had the opportunity to follow his latest commitment around for two years.
"Coach Byers played a big part in my commitment. I spent the whole day with him earlier in the week. Monday after talking to him, I knew I wanted to be a Highlander."
Despite being a freshman, Brown hopes to make an immediate impact.
"It feels good to be committed, but I want to make a big impact next year. I am going to rebound and defend, and I will do what it takes to win. But I will always bring a positive attitude."
