According to multiple reports, the Mississippi State Bulldogs nabbed their third commit of the 2015 recruiting cycle, Morgan County (GA) point guard Quindarius “Tookie” Brown. Brown will join wing Dante Scott and big man Joseph Struggs in the class. Brown is having a banner junior year at Morgan County, as according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he is averaging better than 25 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game.
Coach Rick Ray seems to have Mississippi State headed in the right direction in his second year on campus. The Bulldogs already have six commits in the fray between the 2014 and 2015 classes, with Maurice Dunlap, Demetrius Houston and Oliver Black signed for next season.
Brown played well on the AAU circuit last summer for Southern Stampede’s 16U squad. He has good court vision, and has quickness and speed. Brown has been notable as a scorer at the high school level, but it remains to be seen how that translates to college. Perhaps his size is not ideal for an SEC lead guard, but Brown has shown a competitive nature on the grassroots circuit, and should be a key part of Coach Ray’s drive to rebuild the Bulldogs’ program.
Brown is considered the No. 15 prospect in talent-rich Georgia, by GeorgiaHoops.com.
