Josh Brown is in his second year at Odessa College. Brown is a 6'4" shooting guard from Ruston, LA. He will return to his hometown to take over the shooting guard duties from senior Jamel Guyton. Guyton also played at Odessa College.
A second Odessa player, Scottie Farrington, is expected to sign with Louisiana Tech. Farrington, from the Bahamas, played for Rogers State University last season. Farrington is from the same country as current Bulldog Magnum Rolle. The 6'9" athlete played at Christian Life Academy, the same high school that saw Olu Ashaolu become a nationwide recruit.
Both Farrington and Wright have been on long journeys from other countries, to multiple schools, and now to Louisiana Tech. Farrington, Wright, and Brown have been recruited by Louisiana Tech for a long time and will form a strong nucleus with fellow junior Ashaolu.
Kadeem Coleby, who signed with Louisiana Tech last season, is now a freshman at Odessa. Coleby is a third native of the Bahamas that has ties to Tech. The 6'9" center played his senior season at Christian Life as Ashaolu and Farrington had before him. There is a god chance that Coleby will sign with Tech next year.
James "Duece" Johnson is the fourth player that is expected to sign this week. The 6'7" power forward is a strong athlete in the mold of Ashaolu. Johnson plays for Campbell Hall High School in North Hollywood, CA.
Holton Hunsaker, who had previously signed with Tech, is in the second year of his church mission. The point guard from Utah is expected to sign with Louisiana Tech in May.
Louisiana Tech Head Coach Kerry Rupp has put together a very strong class that will continue what players like Magnum Rolle and Kyle Gibson started.
