Todd Brown (Wright State) joins Scorers1st Sportmanagement

leave a comment »

Todd Brown the 6’5″ senior  guard/forward from Wright State inked with Scorers 1st Sportmanagement. Todd has scored over 1400 points in his career at Wright State and shot over 38% from three point range.

In his 4 years at Wright State he was an impact player averaging 23.4 min/game his freshman year and over 30 min/game the following three years. Playing all these minutes at the D1 level has made him a mature offensive player with a strong skill set.

He can score off the dribble as well as from a set position which gives him the ability to create his own shot. His full offensive ability has great upside as he played in a defensive system in college.

His gamefilm is available at www.scorersfirst.com
