Fullerton, Calif. -
Jared Brandon of Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield has signed a national letter of intent to continue his basketball career at Cal State Fullerton in 2012-13. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound guard led Canyon Springs High School of North Las Vegas to the Nevada state championship in 2011.
Brandon joins forwards Marquis Horne of Salt Lake City Community College and James "Deuce" Johnson of Central Wyoming College in the Titans' November class of recruits.
"Jared is a long, rangy guard who can play all three positions on the perimeter," said Associate Head Coach Andy Newman. "He has good size and strength for a guard and has a real knack for scoring in the lane."
Brandon averaged 17.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists as a senior for Canyon Springs. In the 82-47 win over Reno's Bishop Manogue in the state 4A title game he had 18 points and 8 rebounds. His team went 29-2 with a 13-1 league mark.
