Men's Basketball Signs Forward From Memphis

San Jose, Calif.—Brandon Mitchell, a 6-5 forward from Ridgeway High School in Memphis, Tenn., has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play men’s basketball for San Jose State University starting in 2013-14, as announced by head coach Dave Wojcik.

Mitchell played at Ridgeway High School for head coach Wes Henning, and his 2012-13 team finished the season ranked fourth in Tennessee.  Mitchell had eight points in the team’s 90-71 win over Whitehaven in the Class AAA Region 8-AAA semifinal game.   He also played in the 5th Annual Basketball Coaches of Tennessee All-Star game this past March.

“Brandon is a versatile athlete that can play multiple positions on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball,” said Wojcik.  He is a terrific rebounder and has an unbelievable desire to win.  He plays hard on the floor and refuses to lose.  I am delighted to have Brandon join the Spartan program.” 

Mitchell joins Isaac Thornton, a 6-3 guard from Sam Houston HS in San Antonio, Jalen James, 6-3 point guard from La Lamiere School in La Porte, Ind., and Rashad Muhammad, a 6-5 shooting guard from Bishop Gorman HS in Las Vegas, as part of Coach Wojcik’s first recruiting class.  The Spartans still have scholarships to grant by the May 15th deadline.
