The Tale

Mikeal Brown-Jones was recently in State college on an official visit back in October (the 12th, to be exact). He liked it so much that he committed a month later. With offers from four of the Big 5, this is yet another coup for Pat Chambers from the heart of Philly.


Pending some decisions, Brown-Jones fills the Nittany Lions’ sole scholarship opening for the 2020 class. Like recent additions to the program, Brown-Jones is believed to be “under-ranked” among basketball circles, much in the mold of Myles Dread and Rasir Bolton. And like the aforementioned two, Mikeal can come in and contribute right away on a team that could be looking at the possibility of having both Lamar Stevens and Mike Watkins depart at the same time.

Welcome to Penn State, Mikeal!
