Will UVA get both Stith brothers?
Former NBA guard Bryant Stith played at Virginia, and now coaches both of his sons at Brunswick High in Brunswick, Va. So when 2014 shooting guard B.J. Stith committed to the Cavaliers over the weekend, it was not a huge surprise.
The question now is whether it will be a package deal with B.J. and his older brother, Brandan. Virginia has already extended a scholarship offer, but according to David Teel of the Daily Press the situation is a little more complicated.
"Brandan will graduate from Brunswick in 2013, but because of roster make-up and scholarship limits, Virginia has asked Brandan to attend prep school for a year before enrolling with his brother in 2014," writes Teel. "Meanwhile, programs such as Virginia Tech, George Washington, Xavier, Clemson, Ohio, Tennessee, DePaul and South Carolina are showing interest in Brandan for 2013."
The decision could come down to this for Brandan Stith: follow in the footsteps of his father and brother, even if it means waiting an extra year to do so, or forge his own path at another high-profile school without having to spend a year in prep school.
