The Greyhounds have added size for next season with the signing of 6'7" Cullen Brown from Rivercrest High School in Wilson, Arkansas.
Brown averaged 10.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game and shot over 60% from the field and over 70% from the free throw line for the Colts on his way to All-Conference honors. He was also named to the All-Tournament team at the 34th Annual Kell Classic Basketball Tournament held at Swifton Gym of Jackson County School District. Brown was a four-year letterman at Rivercrest under Head Coach Hunter Robinson and grew nearly five inches between the start of his sophomore and junior year.
Rivercrest (24-8) is one of eight teams remaining in Arkansas whose season was put on hold by the current COVID-19 pandemic. After winning their last six games in a row to advance to the Arkansas Class 3A State Championship game, the Colts are scheduled to play conference-foe Osceola whom they have defeated three of four times this season, the last of which was a 59-54 victory in the Region 3 Championship Game to claim a top seed in the state tournament. At the time of this article, the Arkansas Activities Association has not determined if the game will be cancelled or played at a later date.
Brown is the second signee for the 2020-21 season for the Greyhounds and joins incoming freshman Torien Stewart from Memphis and six returners.
