Mattoon, IL - Coach Brown strikes gold again from his East Coast roots. He signed Tahlib Swan a 6'4 wing out of Monclair HS in Montclair, NJ. He averaged 15 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block during his senior campaign. Swan was a 2-year captain and a 3-year Varsity starter. After his senior year he played in both the North-South and East-West NJ All-star games. Swan was also named to the Super Essex All-Area team and was voted to the All-County team.
"I am truly excited about the chance to coach a winner like Tahlib, Brown replied." "He has a tremendous skill set, an amazing wing spand for a guard, and he's a freakish athlete." Tahlib will be a critical part of Laker success next season."
