Bucs get multitalented guard from Southeast Missouri State

From staff reports • Jul 17, 2019 at 6:47 PM

JOHNSON CITY — Ledarrius Brewer, a 6-foot-5 guard who can score inside and out, has transferred to play for the East Tennessee State basketball team.

In two seasons at Southeast Missouri State, Brewer averaged 13.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. He will have to sit out the coming season because of NCAA transfer rules, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining.

“Ledarrius was one of the most talented players in the OVC the past two years,” ETSU coach Steve Forbes said. “His length and athleticism give him the ability to score at the rim and at the 3-point line. We’ve had some very good players transfer and sit out during our time at ETSU, and we expect Ledarrius to make an immediate impact when he becomes eligible next year. We are excited to have him in our program.”

Brewer, a native of Meridian, Mississippi, had a career-high 34 points on 11-of-18 shooting (7-of-10 from three) against Eastern Illinois on Feb. 15, 2018. Overall, Brewer scored 805 points and registered 118 3-pointers for the Redhawks.

As a freshman, Brewer earned a spot on the Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer Team after averaging 14.5 points in 31 games (27 starts). Brewer led the Redhawks with 71 made 3-pointers in 2017-18 en route to helping SEMO break the single-season 3-point record.
