Zach Braxton Commits to Weber State

After this season, Weber State will lose big men Kyle Tresnak and Byron Fulton. So, it figured that they would target that area in recruiting, and that is what they have done, getting a commitment from Highlands Ranch 6'9'' forward Zach Braxton. Braxton announced it on his twitter feed.

Braxton had offeres from Denver, Green Bay, and Wyoming, with interest coming from the likes of Colorado, Montana, Montana State, Northwestern, Northern Colorado, and Stanford, per his Rivals profile.

Last year, he averaged 15.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 3.4 blocks per game, leading his league in rebounds and blocked shots. He had impressed recently, and Northwestern seemed to be after him hard. He is described as a "two hand finisher in traffic and a solid presence in the paint."

He looks like a polished big man who could have an impact right away. Once again, Weber State shows that they are at a level in recruiting that nobody in the Big Sky is matching, at least not on a regular basis. Braxton is the beginning of another promising class for the Wildcats.
