2 Hoops Commitments

The good news started late Sunday night and continued onto Monday afternoon for Danny Kaspar and his basketball staff. They picked up a point guard transfer and then a much needed low post commit.

The staff was really focusing on upgrading the point guard position for the 2014 season. First it was the edition of junior combo guard Ethan Montalvo (North Platte JC), and now a true point has been added in senior transfer D.J. Brown.

"There was a link, me and Coach Talvin Hester. He coached me for 2 years when I was at San Jose State. It happened to be Texas State was looking for a point guard, so it worked out for both of us," said Brown.

Brown is a 6'2" 185lb point guard and will be graduating from San Jose State later in May. He will use his last year of eligibility to transfer to Texas State for the 2014-2015 season and he's not far away from arriving in San Marcos.

"I graduate May 24th and I'll be out there the next week. They want me there for both summer sessions," said Brown."

In the end, after his visit, Brown knew where he wanted to be.

"The campus life was incredible. I'm from the west coast and I was blown away. The tour of the campus and facilities was unbelievable. After a day and a half it felt like family," said Brown.

Brown was one of three recruits on campus this weekend. As a junior, the 6'2" 185lb floor general started 28 of 29 games. He averaged 9 points, nearly 4 assists, and 3 rebounds.

BobcatIllustrated first told you about Tallahassee JC low post Cameron Naylor three weeks ago when he visited. Our staff was also able to break the news on him being the 6th pledge of the 2014 class.

His 6'7" 220lb frame can be a much needed presence down low to help bang for Coach Kaspar and the Bobcats. As a sophomore on the juco level he logged 13 points and 5 boards a game.

He's athletic enough to also finish at the tin and long enough to be a factor on the boards.

Naylor chose Texas State over Florida International University.
