11-1-99...Brandon Mouton has chosen the University of Texas. According to
St. Thomas More head coach Danny Broussard, things got confusing for
Brandon after his mid-October visit to Texas. "His visit to Purdue was
great," said Broussard, "He really liked the players and the campus. But
after his visit to Texas he said it will be a tough decision."
10-14-99...Again we hear of the same three schools involved with Mouton...
Purdue, Louisiana and Texas. But as Russ Blake reports, several other schools
are wanting him to visit.
10-05-99...An update on Brandon Mouton in this article from the Indianapolis
Star. As reported on the FastBreak Recruiting site several weeks ago,
Mouton is still down to three schools...Purdue, USL and Texas.
9-10-99...We talked today to St. Thomas More head coach Danny Broussard
about Mouton. This way to check out the article.
9-9-99...Purdue is expecting a visit this weekend from 6'5 wing scorer
Brandon Mouton, one of the better wing players in the nation. Bob Gibbons
rates Mouton at #40, while FastBreak has him listed as the nation's 7th
best propsect at the wing forward position. Brandon played for Lafayette
Louisiana's St. Thomas More last year, averaging close to 25 points per
game for most of the season. He's an excellent rebounder, can hit from
anywhere on the floor, and can shoot accurately off the dribble. Insider's
Report evaluates him as "a very effective scorer who uses his bulky
frame to mix it up inside and a nice stroke to knock down the midrange
and three point jumper", and rates him at #14. His high school team
finished the 98-99 season 38-3 as state runner-up and 5A District champ.
St. Thomas More was defeated 78-70 in the state finals by Woodlawn, the
team that also defeated another former Boiler prospect, Derrick Zimmerman,
in the semifinals. Of the three loses St. Thomas More suffered last season,
two came at the hands of Woodlawn. Brandon has also been successful on the
AAU circuit. The New Orleans Jazz AAU squad won the Open Division of the
Adidas Big Time tournament back in July, beating Tim Thomas Playaz 110-103.
Tim Thomas Playaz won the Spiece tournament at Purdue in early May. Brandon
led his team in scoring in the finals with 33 points. Mouton went on this
summer to land on the all-tournament fourth team of the Bob Gibbons' Tournament
of Champions, and average 9.8 ppg, 3.4 rpg and 0.6 apg against the nation's
top players at the ABCD Camp in Teaneck. Mouton has unofficially visited a host
of schools including Texas, LSU, Southern Miss and SW Louisiana, but has yet
to make an official visit. Schools being mentioned include Clemson, Michigan,
Purdue, Kansas, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Texas and Syracuse
(according to RecruitingNow)...Clemson, Michigan, Purdue, Kansas, Connecticut,
Cincinnati, Kentucky, Texas and Syracuse (according to Insider's Report).
