MOREHEAD, Ky. — LJ Bryan, a 6-foot-9 power forward who played last season at State Fair Community College in Missouri, has inked a National Letter of Intent to join the Morehead State men’s basketball program.

He will have three years of Division I eligibility remaining starting in 2019-20.

“We are extremely excited to add LJ to our program. He will give us some much needed size on the interior,” said head coach Preston Spradlin. “LJ brings a great defensive presence and rebounding ability to our team. He also comes in as a highly-regarded student who values getting his degree. We’ll look for him to make immediate impact for us.”

Bryan, a native of Cheltenham, Md., who weighs in at 250 pounds, averaged 7.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocked shots per outing at State Fair in 2018-19. He also connected on 58 percent of his field goals. He was named Second-Team All-16th Region.

Bryan attended Fork Union Military Academy in 2017-18 after graduating from St. John’s High School.

Off the court, Bryan maintained a 4.0 grade point average at State Fair.
