These players will be trying out for the U17 USA squad that will compete in the FIBA U17 World Championships from August 8th-16th in Dubai.

Brandon Austin seems to have finally landed somewhere after being dismissed from Oregon this spring. The story was first reported by CBS Sports’ Jeff Borzello.
Brandon Austin has enrolled at Northwest Florida State JC: cbsprt.co/1z9h1bv
We have statements from the coach, AD & school president.—

The interesting aspect of this story is that the head coach at Northwest Florida State Junior College is none other than former Tim Welsh assistant Steve DeMeo. DeMeo was named the head coach in July 2013 following a stint as an assistant to Mo Cassera at Hofstra.
On Austin, DeMeo said “we have the experience, support and resources to help Brandon get back on track towards graduating and help him be a successful student athlete on and off the court.” Austin was reportedly going to enroll at Hutchinson CC before the president there said no. DeMeo just had former PC recruit Michael Chandler on his roster who will now go to Oregon this upcoming season.
As FriarTV said on Twitter earlier, it’s a small world. Hopefully Austin can grow up and get his life back on track.
