Much Ado about Nothing?

You may have noticed that the roster that was presented on this site by a commenter recently included the name Aaron Brown, 6-6 Fr F. And you might have had one of those exciting could it really happen moments like I did. Because Aaron Brown, or at least the one I was thinking of was a highly recruited forward out of the Philadelphia area, who signed with West Virginia last November.

But sometimes, as we all know, things happen. And sometimes guys end up where they aren't supposed to. So even though I've tracked things for a moment I got a flutter that maybe this was the Aaron Brown. Based on a few searches in the last week, I think maybe some of you have thought the same thing.

But Brown is still on the West Virginia roster. So that Aaron Brown is not coming here.

It's still possible that another Aaron Brown could be part of the Mount's roster this fall, but I am not aware of it. And what a coincidence (although stranger things have happened) that would be.

UPDATED**** - It appears that there is another Aaron Brown. Still haven't gotten confirmation that he is on campus or what his status is if he's there. Below are a few videos. Looks like a good shooter from the wings. Kind of a quirky release, a little low, but looks like he knows the game and how to score.

  7. Aaron Brown was a senior last year and his Facebook page lists him as being the the Mount class of 2015. That means he is either a walk on or someone who was scheduled to enroll, chose not to resulting in Brown as a late signing.

  9. Why? Because there are problems yet to be worked out with some of the players. Hope we are not too surprised and disappointed with the actions of the players or the discipline from the administration.

  12. Neither. One guy gone forever, not to be missed.
    Two others might straighten out and be back in 2 months.
