The Brandon University Bobcats men’s basketball team has added a little more backcourt depth.
The Bobcats have received a commitment from 6-foot-3 shooting guard Samy Stanson Desir. Desir is a former athlete of the year at École Jeanne-Mance and was inspired to join BU by fellow Montrealer and Bobcat veteran Ali-Mounir Benabdelhak.
"I’ve known for a long time that I want to play at the CIS level and Brandon has a good program that will allow me to develop my skills in a new setting," Desir said in a release.
Desir is the third guard to join BU’s off-season recruiting class, following Neelin Spartans star Quinton Hunter, whose commitment was announced on Tuesday, and former University of Waterloo Warrior Denham Buchanan. The Bobcats have also added British Columbia forward Ryan Cowley, with a couple more announcements expected shortly.
