"Cory is a kid I've known for a long time," Brownell said. "He's a very talented guard. He¹s got good quickness and athleticism. He's a pretty good outside shooter. He's a scoring point guard that has an infectious personality. He¹s a hard worker. In my opinion, he will be a leader of this program in the future because of his personality and his drive to be successful. We're lucky to have him."
Stanton, a 5-foot-11 guard who originally signed with Wright State, averaged 23.7 points and 4.6 rebounds per game as a senior, while dishing out 3.8 assists per game. He was an all-region performer at the class AAA level in Tennessee this past season, and a two-time all-district selection. Stanton averaged 19.1 points and 7.5 assists per game as a junior in 2008-09.
Stanton was rated the state's No. 7 player, regardless of position, among the class of 2010 high school seniors by Tennessee Prep Hoops. He was also a McDonald's High School All-America nominee. Stanton posted seven 30-point games as a senior, including a season-best 38 in December of 2009 against Kenwood High School.
