Now a couple of verbal commitments have surfaced via Twitter. We heard about both last week but hadn't seen them officially listed anywhere until now.
A pair of junior college teammates have pledged to sign with UALR in November. Southwest Tennessee Community College's Jerron Washington and Andre Brown are being reported as UALR commits by recruiting sites Verbal Commits, Juco Junction and Rivals.
Washington is a 6-4 shooting guard originally from Kirby High School in Memphis.
Brown is a 6-6 forward from Northwest High School in Clarksville, Tenn.
Southwest Tennessee has an interesting team this year. They are coached by former Arkansas State guard Jerry Nichols. You might remember him as the guy who wouldn't wear Adidas while in Jonesboro. Anyway, Nichols coached most of this group last year at Motlow State. In the offseason, he moved to Southwest Tennessee and most of his team moved with him. He's got other Division I signees, including Charles Waters, a 6-7 forward, committed to Arkansas State, DeVante Jones, a 5-10 point guard, committed to Middle Tennessee and Chris Hawkins, a 6-5 forward, committed to Memphis.
According to the NJCAA stats (which aren't always accurate or updated) both Washington and Brown played limited minutes as freshmen. Washington averaged 2.3 points and 0.9 rebounds while Brown averaged 4.2 points and 4.1 rebounds.
Those numbers may or may not be accurate. Still hunting down some official stats.
