"It just felt like everything there was about basketball," Bronson said. "The whole staff and everybody in the community was willing to help the players and I saw that. Coach will get the best out of you and they work extremely hard."
Bronson takes a circuitous route to Xavier. The former Philadelphia Lutheran standout picked East Carolina coming out of prep school. He played in just a single scrimmage game with the Pirates before making his way to Panola.
"I left East Carolina going into the second semester. I called my coach and he helped get me over to Panola. I left for academic reasons."
Bronson, despite playing this year at Panola, will have three seasons of eligibility remaining once he hits campus next fall.
"I'm a way better athlete. I run and jump a lot better. I've always been skilled but most of the changes in my game are about being a better athlete; running and jumping stuff."
