The WKU men’s basketball team added another member to its 2017-2018 basketball roster this weekend.

South Plains College’s Jordan Brangers made the announcement on Twitter this past weekend that he will be joining the Western Kentucky basketball program next season.

Brangers was originally signed to play basketball at Texas Tech, but was able to switch his commitment to WKU based on family reasons.

Brangers is a native of the Bluegrass, having played high school basketball at both Eastern and North Hardin.

Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff caught up with Brangers on Tuesday’s show to discuss his decision:
