Cal men’s basketball has made yet another addition to next year’s incoming class, earning a commitment from consensus three-star point guard Joel Brown.

Brown, who hails from Brampton, Ontario, is ranked as the 12th-best point guard in his class, according to 247Sports. In addition to Cal, Brown also fielded offers Clemson, Minnesota and Vanderbilt, among others.

In June, Brown won a silver medal playing with the Canadian U18 team at the FIBA U18 Americas Championship, averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game.

The point guard has been lauded for his athleticism and playmaking abilities, but has some work to do in the shooting department. At the Americas Championship, Brown shot 20 percent from deep and 42.1 percent from the free throw line.
Brown will join big man D.J. Thorpe and guard Charles Smith IV as part of Cal’s incoming class of 2019, both of whom are three-star prospects.
