Recruiting Recap: Chris Brown
Tigerville, SC - Join us in welcoming Chris Brown from Hopkins, South Carolina to the basketball family. Chris signed with Winthrop University out of high school where he attended and redshirted in 2011-2012.
The following two years Chris attended USC Salkehatchie where he was a standout player on the basketball team. Chris was voted “Chick-fil-a Classic MVP his senior year, and received the “All-Around Coaches Award,” as a sophomore at USC Salkehatchie, an award given to one male and one female student athlete. Chris earned his associates degree and will be majoring in Sport Management.
Coach Lister on Chris: “Chris is a guy we knew right away was a great fit. He came highly recommended from last year’s senior captain, and one of our all-time favorites, “the Mayor of Hopkins,” Keith Johnson. I think his exact quote was, “Chris is the only guy I will admit can shoot better than me.” In addition to Chris’ ability to shoot, he has the length and versatility to score from anywhere in the half court, and attacks well in the full court. This fall Chris has immediately made defense a priority and has the experience and maturity to help get everyone on the same page. He is not afraid to ask questions, and is a sponge when it comes to learning new things. Chris is a great guy, and is someone we love having in our locker room.”
Chris on North Greenville: “There are so many things about North Greenville that I love. The people here are great, the campus is a top notch learning environment, and everyone associated with the basketball program already feels like family. I also love that home is only an hour and a half away. My Mom (Audrey Brown), Dad (Carl Brown), and little sister (Carla Brown) will be able to come to a lot of our games, and I can get home from time to time. My family has always been most important to me. I am excited about playing basketball here at North Greenville, and about getting my education, but I get the most excited thinking about making my Mom proud.”
