Conference Preview

Roydell Brown (2016, 6’5 Forward, Helen Cox) is headed to the University of Louisiana Lafayette after his commitment was made last night. He hasn’t decided whether or not he’ll sign early but ULL is getting an elite level athlete who is always good for a few highlights a game.

We asked Brown why ULL and he said. “Feel it’s a good fit for me and also can help me get better as a player and get to the next level.” There is no doubt that the players are taking note of Elfrid Payton’s step from ULL to NBA.

He played with Payton’s summer league team EP Elite as well as Jet Life and Louisiana Dynasty over the summer and coaches noticed him at each stop. He told us he’s working on his ball handling, quickness, and shooting to prepare for the next level. While he plays primarily as a forward right now, ULL has plans of playing him on the wing as a slasher.

Going into his senior season at Helen Cox with a big man in Khalea Turner next to him, Roydell is looking to make another run but as the leader this time with Marlain Veal off to Southeastern Louisiana University.
