The Brandon University Bobcats are welcoming a handful of recruits and transfers for the 2012-13 season for their men's and women's basketball teams.  


Men’s Basketball

After a one-year hiatus the Brandon Bobcats men’s basketball team is pleased to welcome back 2010-2011 team Most Valuable Player Isaiah James.

The 6-foot-7, high-flying forward soared into Brandon in September of 2010, leading the team in field-goal percentage, steals, and blocked shots in his first season as a Bobcat. Add those stats to a number of highlight-reel dunks, and James is sure to give Bobcat fans something to cheer about this season.

Joining James are Montreal products Peterson Suffrard and Jude Molin. Suffrard is a 6-foot-7 big-bodied post, while Molin is a 6-foot-4 who is known for making plays at the perimeter.

Men’s basketball complete recruiting class:

  • Isaiah James – 6-7, F – San Jose City College – San Jose, CA

  • Jude Molin – 6-4, F – Brookwood Elite – Montreal, QC

  • Peterson Suffrard – 6-7, F – École Louis Joseph Papineau – Montreal, QC
