Another Dwyer Guard Goes High-Major

Fred Brown, a combo guard out of Florida, is heading to the Midwest. After making an official visit last weekend, Brown is Big 12-bound.

The Kansas State Wildcats have added another combo guard. This time, Bob Huggins and his crew dipped into Florida where it added Fred Brown, a combo out of Palm Beach (Fla.) Dwyer.

"They've been on him since they were at Cincinnati," Billy Palagonia, an assistant at Dwyer said. "They came down here when Freddy transferred in. Frank Martin knew that if he could play for Coach Ross (he could play at Kansas State)."

As a junior, Brown put up 14 points and 7 assists. He ran with various traveling teams this summer. Dwyer has cranked out its share of high-major prospects in recent seasons including Alonzo Gee and Leemire Goldwire.

"His strength is passing the basketball," Palagonia said. "This kid can really pass it and get people the ball. You put him with a few other big time guys around him and he doesn't need to score."

The Wildcats, fresh off an enormous weekend of hosting recruits, picked up Jacob Pullen and now Brown in the last few days.

Palagonia sees K-State as a place where Brown can eventually flourish. "At Kansas State he's going to improve physically, we all know that. He's got the length and the ability and it's just a matter of putting the work in. When you go out to play for Coach Huggins you have no choice and he needs that."
