Twombly makes commitment
Northern Arizona landed a big commitment on Sunday night, as 6-foot-6, 200-pound Encinitas (Calif.) La Costa Canyon small forward Brady Twombly pledged to the Lumberjacks. The 2015 prospect is a high level shooter who can also put the ball on the ground and finish at the rim. His athleticism and motor have improved, as has his rebounding. According to Sunny Deen, who coached Twombly with the Gamepoint AAU squad this past season, there are several reasons the forward is headed to Flagstaff. "He wants to get on court early and make an impact," said Deen. "He likes that the NAU program is going in an upward swing and thinks he can be a difference maker with their style and system." Twombly's versatility will help him get on the floor early for NAU, Deen said. "He thinks he can come in and be a versatile player and spread the defense with his three ball," said Deen. "He'll defend, rebound and be a combination forward who helps them win the league, conference title and helps them get to the tournament." NAU head coach Jack Murphy played a big role in Twombly's decision. "His relationship with coach Murphy was second to none," Deen said. "That was the coach recruiting him the hardest. He was honest and is a real down to earth player's coach. He recruited him the right way and has recruited him since he was a sophomore."
