South Plains College guard Jordan Brangers is officially a Hilltopper.
The Radcliff, Ky., native, who announced his decision to join the Western Kentucky program last weekend, signed his Letter of Intent the school announced on Wednesday.
“We’re excited to have Jordan as a part of our basketball program and our family,” WKU head coach Rick Stansbury said. “It’s very obvious he’s a terrific player who can provide help with a need on our team and has a great ability to shoot the basketball.”
Branger set a new single-season three-point shooting record for the Levelland, Tex., junior college last season by draining 151 attempts from beyond the arc. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard connected on 46 percent from three-point land and 49 percent from the floor overall in leading SPC in a third place finish in the national junior college tournament.
Branger, who played at North Hardin before finishing his high school career at Louisville Eastern, averaged 20.9 points per outing - ranking fourth nationally. He was honored as the 2017 Region V Player of the Year and WJCAC Player of the Year.
He is the No. 3 ranked prospect by JUCORecruiting.com.
He joins WKU's highly-rated 2017 recruiting class that also includes five-star Mitchell Robinson, four-star guard Josh Anderson and Mr. Kentucky honoree Taveion Hollingsworth.
