Princeton lands commitment from Alec Brennan

The Princeton Tigers added a fourth member to their 2014 recruiting class Wednesday with a commitment from Alec Brennan, a 6-foot-10 forward from Weston, Mass.

Brennan, considered a three-star recruit by ESPN and Rivals, had received offers from a number of major conference programs including Maryland, Purdue and Wake Forest.

The Milton Academy graduate is the second three-star prospect in the Tigers’ 2014 class, joining East Brunswick’s Amir Bell. The class also includes Mike Leblanc, a 6-6 small forward from Dover, N.H. and Aaron Young, a point guard from Lynchburg, Va.
