Gonzaga Lands San Jose State Transfer Brandon Clarke


Brandon Clarke, the 6-foot-7 small forward from San Jose State, announced his transfer to Gonzaga on Wednesday via Twitter. Clarke will have to redshirt in 2017-18 and then have two years left to play

Excited to say that I am committing to Gonzaga University,” said Clarke in a statement via Twitter. “Thank you to the man upstairs. I cannot wait to be a Bulldog!!! #ZagUp.”

As a sophomore last season, Clarke put up 17.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game while shooting 58 percent from the field and was selected as an All-Mountain West First-Team member. After the 2015-16 season, Clarke was voted the Mountain West Sixth Man of the Year in 2015-16 by the league’s head coaches.

Clarke chose Gonzaga over Oregon and Washington State after cutting his list to three schools last week. His departure from San Jose State came late this summer after the abrupt resignation of former head coach Dave Wojcik in mid-July.

Although Gonzaga has no high school commits for the 2018 class, they already have a solid two-man class of Brock Ravet and Anton Watson in 2019. The Bulldogs are in the running for 2018 recruits Andrew Nembhard and Jordan Brown, both of whom cut their lists last week.

Coming out of high school in 2015, Clarke was ranked by ESPN as the No. 2 player from the state of Arizona. ESPN labeled Clarke as a 3-star recruit coming out of high school.
