Men’s recruit released, trio signed

Kinley Branch, a 6-foot-5 high school senior from Georgia who had signed a National Letter of Intent to play for GW next season, has been released from his commitment, his high school coach said last week.

Andrew Sullivan, men’s basketball head coach at Branch’s Stone Mountain High School in Georgia, said that it is his understanding that the Colonials granted Branch his release. Sullivan said Branch is now being recruited by up to 30 teams, including schools from the SEC, one of the nation’s elite conferences.

The release of Branch finalizes a recruiting class of a half-dozen players that will head to Foggy Bottom in the fall. Coaches of three of the prospective Colonials – forwards David Pellom and Daymon Warren and guard Tim Johnson – have confirmed that the players have signed LOIs to play at GW. Coaches of the other three could not be reached for confirmation.
