Recently named First Team National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II All-American, Genesee Community College men's basketball player Brian Fobbs will be taking up residence in Towson, Md. next season to continue his collegiate basketball career at the division-one level.
The Towson University men's basketball team announced the signing of Fobbs to a National Letter of Intent today, April 12.
A 6-foot-5 guard, Fobbs recently completed an outstanding two-year career at GCC. He was named the NJCAA Region-III Player of the Year and led the region in points-per-game (26.4) and rebounds-per-game (12.7).
"He's a big time shooter and scorer who is efficient and productive," Towson head men's basketball coach Pat Skerry said of Fobbs.
"He's also versatile and physical. He is a guy (assistant coach Kevin) Clark identified and we quickly got him to campus. Brian is also an excellent rebounder with a great work ethic. His shooting percentages from the field from three-point land and the free-throw line were all outstanding this year. On top of that, he is great kid and excited to join our program."
In helping Genesee Community College win 19 games and advance to the Region III semifinals, Fobbs shot 57.2 percent from the field and made 71 three-pointers. He scored 30 or more points nine times, including a single-game program record of 46 points. Fobbs also had 16 games of at least 20 or more points, and ended his two years with the Cougars with 1,306 points - which is fourth all-time in program history.
Cougars' head men's basketball coach Terry George had nothing but praise for his top player this season, "Brian had a tremendous season! From the first game of the season until the last possession of the year, 'B.Fobbs' dominated this level like only a handful of players to ever put on the Genesee uniform. He put in all the necessary work to accomplish most of his goals at GCC and deserves everything that comes his way!"
Fobbs joins a winning Tigers program that competes in the Colonial Athletic Association and plays out of SECU Arena.
