Nov. 21, 2008
STANFORD, Calif.- Stanford men's basketball head coach Johnny Dawkins has announced the signing of Andy Brown to a National Letter of Intent to join the Cardinal for the 2009-10 campaign.
'We are excited to have Andy join our family,' said head coach Johnny Dawkins. 'Andy brings a nice blend of versatility to our program and we expect him to be a great player in our system. He is a highly-skilled competitor who comes to us from one of the best high school programs in the country.'
A 6-8, 215-pound forward from Yorba Linda, Calif., Brown has helped guide Mater Dei High School to state championships during his sophomore and junior seasons. An all-state selection as a junior, Brown has also been recognized as an All-Orange County first team selection. A two-time all-league honoree, Brown was also tabbed an All-CIF first team selection as a junior. A two-time team captain, Brown is coming off a junior season in which he posted averages of 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
'What really attracted me to Stanford was the opportunity to receive a first-class education and be part of a premier program,' said Brown. 'The first time I met Coach Dawkins, I realized what a great guy he was both on and off the court. I'm excited to be at Stanford and I know the coaching staff will help me play to the best of my ability.'
Stanford is off to a 2-0 start, kicking off the year with a 75-67 win at Yale before defeating Cal State Northridge 103-85 in the home opener at Maples Pavilion.
The Cardinal is back in action with a pair of home games next week, taking on Air Force (Wednesday, Nov. 26 - 7:30 p.m.) and Colorado (Saturday, Nov. 29 - 7:30 p.m.).
