OREM, Utah – The Utah Valley men’s basketball program received a commitment from UAB transfer guard Jordan Brinson.

As a true freshman for UAB last season, Brinson played in 26 games with four starts, averaging 3.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

“Jordan Brinson is a winner, a leader, and a tremendous talent,” said UVU head coach Mark Madsen. “As a true freshman last year at UAB, he showed that he can run a great team in huge games. Jordan is a lock down defender and wreaks havoc on other teams’ perimeter players. Jordan is a high flyer who finishes everything. He always seems to find the open man and he knocks down the three with confidence. When you find a player who elevates the level of play of every single person around him, it stands out. In addition to his own unique talents, Jordan just makes everyone around him better. I am incredibly excited to welcome Jordan and his family to the UVU community.”

Brinson is from Inglewood, California where he prepped at Westchester High School in Los Angeles. While in high school, Brinson led the team to a 24-5 record as a senior while averaging 16.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game.
