New Jersey Senior Will Make Impact For Rams

Paterson Catholic wing guard Lance Brown loves the uptempo pace when playing the game of basketball. Brown, who helped Jimmy Salmon's Playaz AAU program land a coveted IS8 Fall League championship, has already given a commitment to the hard-working staff of Fordham University.

Brown, 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior, is expected to produce many points this season as he prepares for the next level. "I like the coaches and think I'll be able to make an impact," said Brown.

Brown selected Fordham over other scholarship offers from Quinnipiac, George Mason, and Robert Morris.

While he has quickness, Brown's improved perimeter game was noticeable at IS8 and during the summer. There was plenty of offensive talent on the Playaz Senior team but it's important to note that Brown didn't force the issue on his limited touches.

It was a smart move by the Rams' coaching staff to lock Brown up. He's improving and should be a player that will land significant minutes for a Fordham basketball program on the rise based upon some solid recruiting over the past couple of years.
