We received a couple of nice commitments this morning from a pair of talented point guards that will sign with us during the early period. The first is high flying Georgia prep star Brandon Barron (6-0, 150) from Alphretta HS (GA) who averaged 18.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 2.3 steals per game.
The other commit is 5-9 ball handling wizard and floor leader Fred Cleveland II from Leo Catholic High School in Chicago, Ill. The diminutive Cleveland won the Catholic League's Lawless Award as White Division Player of the Year in 2018. He was named first-team All-Area and second-team All-City by the Chicago Sun-Times and first team Class 2-A All-State by the Associated Press after averaging 18.8 points, 8.1 assists and 3.5 steals per game.

Corbett had some good size guards that were 6' up, like Anderson, Stinchcomb, Boyd, Brown, Cale, Taggard, Moore and others. He would also have a few under 6' like Griffis and Davis on occasion. The difference now is that they could play the game.
Joe Brawner from DC was 5'11'' and played for either Warren Reynolds or Corbett
Gene Littles recruited Joe Brawner out of DC. He was the best point guard at that time, and holds the steals record, good passer with high assist numbers and could shoot very well and scored a lot of points. He and Sparrow were a good combination. He played a year for Corbett. Transferred to WSSU to joint Big House.There have been numerous good guards that played for A&T. Just look up at the banners hanging from the rafters in Corbett. We just have had a lull since Capels. Eaves had a few, but his problem was coaching.

We picked up a commitment from 6-8, 237 lb post Mobolaji Adesoga from Nigeria via Alabama and the Carolina Basketball Academy
He's not going to wow anyone above the rim, which is probably why he wasn't widely recruited. But he has solid hands, good post footwork (actually sets his base on his post-ups) and a physicality we currently don't have on our roster.
