Northridge, Ca. – Brandon Perry, a tough 6-foot-6, 260-pound forward, has signed a National Letter of Intent with Cal State Northridge, according to Matador head coach Bobby Braswell.
"We feel Brandon is one of the top big men in the country," said Braswell. "He is going to give us a scoring threat on the inside. He is also a physical player who is going to rebound effectively on the inside."
Perry played a pivotal role in helping Taft High School to the Los Angeles City Championship last year. Taft chalked up a 29-3 record and a perfect 10-0 mark in the West Valley League.
Perry's top games included 17 points (7-for-9 from the floor) in a 92-38 decision over El Camino Real High School, 15 points and five assists against Palisades HS in the Los Angeles City Section Division I semifinals, and 13 points (6-for-6 from the floor) in a 91-59 win over Cleveland High School.
During the summer of 2011, Perry played on the ICAN All-Stars and showed great potential to be a dominant big man this season. Several publications have rated Perry as one of the top 150 players in the country. As the 2011-12 unwinds at Taft HS, Perry is expected to have a breakout season.
"In my first meeting with Cal State Northridge, I felt at home and believed that I could contribute to the program," said Perry. "They (CSUN) have a great coaching staff and a good family atmosphere. I believe Coach Braswell can get me to the next level of my game to possibly play overseas in the future."
