Washington's Brown headed to St. Joseph's

Charles Brown, a 6-foot-6 forward from George Washington, has committed to St. Joseph's University.

After graduating from Washington in June, Brown will still attend St. Thomas More, a Connecticut-based prep school, before he plans to join the Hawks.

Brown is a long-armed talent who can be an excellent defender and capable scorer.

Last year, he was named MVP of the Public League's B division. His 18.4 points per game during league play also led the division.

Other suitors included Drexel, Robert Morris and Hofstra, among others.

Brown will join fellow Philadelphians, Lamarr Kimble (Neumann-Goretti) and Chris Clover (St. Joseph's Prep), who already signed with the Hawks.
