Arkansas State Basketball Coach John Brady picked up a big commitment from a Texas athlete this weekend.

Richland High School standout Kristopher Brown took an official visit to Jonesboro this weekend and apparently fell in love with Arkansas State.

“It was fantastic,” Brown told AStateNation Sunday evening after returning back home after his visit. “I could really relate to the coaching staff and the current players on the team, my future teammates.”

Brown was definitely excited about committing to the Red Wolves.

“I told them I couldn’t wait to be a Red Wolf,” Brown said. “I knew right away it was the right place for me.”

Arkansas State’s experienced coaching staff stood out to Brown.

“Coach Brady has coached in the SEC,” Brown said. “Coach Haralson was at Texas for a long time, there are a lot of great coaches on their staff.”

Brown enjoyed watching Arkansas State play Central Baptist in an exhibition game.

“They won by 50,” Brown said. “They play intense basketball.”

AStateNation.com also got the chance to visit with Brown’s High School Coach, the Texas coaching legend Richard Bacon.

“Kris is a heck of a player,” Bacon said. “He is an even better young man and believe it or not he is even a better student that he is a young man.”

According to Coach Bacon, who has led several teams to championships in Texas, Brown is a big body basketball player that is a very strong rebounder.

“He can mix it up inside,” Bacon said. “He really enjoyed his visit to Arkansas State, they must have special things going on there.”

Brown also got a chance to take in Saturday night’s football game.

“It was 31-0 when we left,” Brown said. “It was a great atmosphere, I can’t wait to be a Red Wolf.”

Brown chose ASU over UTA, Western Kentucky, Indiana State, Marquette and Old Dominion.
