It has been well documented that new Motlow Bucks head basketball Coach Matt Sligh has gathered players from across the country to fill out Motlow’s roster, including student athletes from Maryland, Texas, Oklahoma and Florida.
But the state of Tennessee has not been overlooked as Sligh recently announced four more additions, all from inside the state, including former Tullahoma Wildcat Brandon Berridge.
Berridge is a 7′ sophomore center who played only one season at Tullahoma in 2009-10. He has grown significantly since then, and Sligh feels he can be a difference maker on both ends of the floor.
“Brandon is a unique find for our program,” said Sligh, “and we are thrilled he chose to restart his basketball career with the Bucks. He has grown into his seven-foot frame and has the ability to run the floor and finish effectively.
“With his size he can block and change shots on the defensive side of the floor. He is hungry to improve and committed to our staff working with him daily. He has a chance, with added strength, to be an impact player at Motlow and beyond.”
