Mississippi State welcomes Tookie Brown to the 2015 Class

UPDATE:   

The Mississippi State Bulldogs nabbed their third commit of the 2015 recruiting cycle, Morgan County (GA) point guard Quindarius “Tookie” Brown. Brown will join wing Dante Scott and big man Joseph Struggs in the class. Mississippi State was the first school to offer theMorgan County point guard Tookie Brown early in the process. Since then, the 5’11, 170 lb scorer has been a huge priority for the Bulldogs. Brown is having a banner junior year at Morgan County, as he is averaging better than 25 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game. Coach Rick Ray seems to have Mississippi State headed in the right direction in his second year on campus. The Bulldogs already have six commits in the fray between the 2014 and 2015 classes, with Maurice Dunlap, Demetrius Houston and Oliver Black signed for next season. Brown is a four-star and ranked No. 91 in the 2015 Future150 rankings. Brown is considered the No. 15 prospect in talent-rich Georgia. Brown also had an offer from UAB, with tons of other high-major interest, like Miami, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Clemson.

ANALYSIS:

Brown played well on the AAU circuit last summer for Southern Stampede’s 16U squad. He has good court vision, and has quickness and speed. Brown has been notable as a scorer at the high school level, but it remains to be seen how that translates to college. Perhaps his size is not ideal for an SEC lead guard, but Brown has shown a competitive nature on the grassroots circuit, and should be a key part of Coach Ray’s drive to rebuild the Bulldog’s program.
