BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — WKU men’s basketball head coach Rick Stansbury announced
Wednesday the signing of sharpshooting guard Jordan Brangers (6-2, Guard) as the
latest addition in the 2017 recruiting class.

“We’re excited to have Jordan as a part of our basketball program and our family,”
Stansbury said. “It’s very obvious he’s a terrific player who can provide help with
a need on our team and has a great ability to shoot the basketball.”

Brangers, an in-state product originally from Radcliff, Ky., proved himself as one
of the elite shooters and scorers at the junior college level in 2016-17.

He averaged 20.9 points per game – ranking fourth nationally in total points scored
at the JUCO level – and connected on an eye-popping 151 of 327 3-point attempts in
an efficient 22.9 minutes per game.

Brangers shot 49.6 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from 3-point range, while
also averaging 3.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists.

His 151 made 3s this season led the nation and broke the South Plains school record
previously held by Marshall Henderson. The Texans finished their season 32-2 and
took third place in the 2017 NJCAA Men’s Basketball National Tournament.

Brangers was named the 2017 Region V Player of the Year and WJCAC Player of the
Year. Before coming to South Plains, he wrapped up his prep basketball career at
Eastern High School in Louisville, Ky.

Brangers is joined in WKU’s nationally ranked signing class by guards Josh Anderson
and Taveion Hollingsworth, as well as center Mitchell Robinson.
