The Player Speaks: RRS’s Drew Kohnle talked with Brangers, who tells the story of how he arrived in Levelland and being offered by Texas Tech:
“I knew that whenever they offered, I was going there. I just know from his perspective how he works and how he enjoys the process and what he can do with players. It was just an easy decision for me.”
Interestingly, Brangers already had a previous connection with Beard because his brother, Jermaine Rutley, played under Beard at Little Rock.
“I really wasn’t sure if he would be interested in me or not,” he said. “The first couple of open gyms, Tech was out there watching me. Then I guess they told coach Beard that he should be interested (in me). And then coach Beard came and watched for himself and that is when he offered.”
Scouting Report: There’s hardly any video, just a few 5 or 6 second video of Brangers dunking at a blacktop court somewhere and that’s it. Just the legend of Brangers, who skipped around some as a high schooler and eventually finding his way to South Plains College. Brangers played at Eastern High School in Louisville and then played a year at Motlow State Community College.
One of the few tidbits I could find was this post by Jody Demling at the Courier-Journal who wrote about Brangers after watching one of Kentucky’s AAU teams back in 2012:
• 1. Jordan Brangers, Eastern – Talk about filling it up. Brangers is going to be a senior for the Eagles and averaged around 26 a game at State AAU. He scored 37 in one game that I saw parts of and has unlimited range.
If I had to guess, I think that Brangers can shoot the heck out of the ball and is most likely one of those guys that can shoot the heck out of the ball from long-range. It will be interesting to watch his stats for SPC this year but my guess is that Brangers is a shooter and a very good one.
