Cougars Land Herrin Standout Alex Brown

Nov. 16, 2009

EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. - Southern Illinois University Edwardsville men's basketball Coach Lennox Forrester announced the signing of 6-foot-9-inch post player Alex Brown (Herrin).

Brown is the third student-athlete to sign a National Letter of Intent for the Class of 2010 after Gerald Jones (St. Louis) and Michael Messer (Wildwood, Mo.).

Regarded as one of the top post players in the state of Illinois by ChicagoHoops.com, Brown blocked 145 shots last season for Herrin High School as a junior.

"Alex is a very long and athletic post player who has his best basketball ahead of him. His ceiling is extremely high, and he has the ability to be someone very special. I am very intrigued by him and am looking forward to working with Alex on a daily basis," Forrester said.

Forrester said his high school development is in good hands.

"He plays under a very good coach in Irv Lukens at Herrin High School. I believe Alex is going to have a very good senior season for Herrin," said Forrester.
