Shooting guard averaged over 20 points per game for South Plains College

WKU has picked up a commitment from junior college standout Jordan Brangers

Western Kentucky head coach Rick Stansbury has added a fifth member to the 2017 recruiting class.

Jordan Brangers,  a one-time Texas Tech commit, announced his decision to become a Hilltopper on Saturday via the social media platform Twitter.


A Radcliff, Ky., native who played at North Hardin before finishing his prep career at Louisville Eastern, Brangers asked and was granted a release from his Texas Tech Letter of Intent after expressing a desire to play closer to home.

He started his college career at St. Catherine College College, but moved on to South Plains College in Levelland, Tex., where he became one of the nation's top junior college prospects.  The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 20.9 points per game for SPC, which finished third in the national junior college tournament.  Brangers drained a school-record 151 three-pointers this past season, connecting on 46 percent of his attempts beyond the arc.  He shot 50 percent from the floor overall.

In addition to WKU and Texas Tech, Brangers also considered interest from Arkansas State, Missouri, New Mexico State, Washington State and others.

He has two years of eligibility remaining.
