Richmond’s Brown signs with Sonoma State

Richmond High guard Isaiah Brown has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Sonoma State next season.

“I met some good people,” Brown said. “They were all really welcoming. They made me want to come back.”

Brown averaged 27.2 points per game as a senior for the Oilers, earning Alameda Contra Costa Athletic League MVP honors. That he was named MVP was especially telling, considering Richmond went just 1-26 on the season.

“It was a real tough season,” Brown said. “No matter what we did right, we just couldn’t get those wins.”

A two-sport star at Richmond who also impressed as a do-everything player on the football field,  Brown said he did give some thought to playing on the gridiron at the next level. But, he said that basketball has always been his No. 1 priority and once the offer came from Sonoma State, he was ready to take it.

    Congrats young man!

  • Bay,
    I’m assuming you meant to leave this comment on the previous post about Jabari Bird being invited to try out for the USA U18 team. And no, Gordon is not on the list of those invited. Surprised me too. Maybe he was invited and for some reason, had to turn it down. I don’t know though. I just know he wasn’t listed.
