Video: ESPN’s Dave Telep Names Brandon Austin Recruit to Surprise in 2013
- Updated: April 13, 2013
After winning a third straight state championship, Class AAA Player of the Year in Pennsylvania and landing in most major publications’ top 50-75 players in the class of 2013, future Friar Brandon Austin certainly isn’t under the radar.
Still, ESPN’s lead recruiting analyst Dave Telep named Austin as his pick as the recruit most likely to surprise nationally next season.
Telep called Austin “an excellent scorer” and “wiry strong” before noting that his jump shot has to get a little bit better to complete his game. He compares Austin to former Memphis guard, and the top shooting guard in the class of 2010, Will Barton. Like Barton, Austin is a slender guard with good length who should provide Ed Cooley with position versatility next season.
