Gonzaga Gets San Jose St Transfer Brandon Clarke

San Jose State sophomore transfer Brandon Clarke has committed to Gonzaga.

 

The 6-8 forward led SJSU in scoring (17ppg), rebounding (8.7rpg), assists (2.3 apg), and blocks (2.5bpg) this season, when he was named to the All-Mountain West First Team and All-Defensive Team.

 

“[Gonzaga] just felt right,” Clarke told The Spokesman-Review. “The campus was so nice, the coaches were very good. I just felt like I would fit into that team very well and play very well in their system.”

 

“I also really like their redshirt program and it’s going to help me get better as a player and a person,” Clarke added.

 

Clarke decided to leave San Jose State last month after head coach Dave Wojcik had resigned in July and was replaced by Jean Prioleau.

 

Gonzaga is getting an impact player in Clarke who can do it all.

 

“Clarke is an athletic ‘4’ who can score, rebound, defend and block shots,” wrote spokesman.com’s Jim Meehan “He excels driving to the basket and operating on the offensive glass.”

 

Zags’ coach Mark Few said he was happy to get the multi-talented big man.

 

“Brandon is an excellent addition to our program,” Few said via a statement. “Not only is he a good player, he is a great person. He is a proven high-caliber scorer and rebounder, and is also an outstanding defender. Brandon will be a great fit to our team and we are excited to have him as a Zag.”

 

Gonzaga beat out Oregon to land Clarke.

 

As per NCAA transfer rules, Clarke will have to sit out next season.
