Another new frontcourter for San Jose State

Okay, start polishing up on your French.

San Jose State has reached into the heart of France -- Paris specifically -- to land Brylle (pronounced Brill) Kamen, a frontcourt player with eligibility for the next three seasons. But frustrating for sure to the coaching staff, a lengthy trip abroad wandering through the various arrondissements of the capital city, wasn't necessary.

A 6-foot-7, 230 pounder, Kamen comes from Western Nebraska Community College where he played for Coach Russ Beck. He just turned 22 on April 21.

Here's Beck on his freshman: "Brylle is very intelligent, a very good student and fun to be around. He is a good rebounder with a big, strong body and can shoot off the dribble and with the pullup jumper. He can also pick-and-pop, shooting on the perimeter."

Kamen also sounds animated on the court. "He'll let everyone know when he grabs a rebound," Beck said.

As a frosh, the Parisian played in 28 games, averaging 8.2 points and grabbing 6.8 rebounds a game.

Kamen first attended Jacksonville State in the Ohio Valley Conference but redshirted. He then transferred to Western Nebraska, located in Scottsbluff.

By the way, Scottsbluff National Monument contains landmarks of the Oregon Trail and the Mormon Trail.

Now, the San Jose State Trail too.
