Incoming Power-5 Transfers (cont’d)

Staying in the Big Ten, Majerle also brought in a major point guard prospect from Northwestern, Isiah Brown, and another big body, Brent Hibbitts, from Michigan. Both will definitely see time for GCU, though they’ll have to sit out this season, per NCAA transfer rules.

As a freshman, Brown had 11 double-digit scoring games, including 19 points against Maryland and six others against Power-5 programs. Last year as a sophomore, Brown’s season-high also came against Maryland (11 points).

Brown committed to GCU right away, telling Paul Coro of GCULopes.com that “he felt right at home” on his first visit. He added that Grand Canyon fans, known as the Havocs, are the “best fans in America.”

Before GCU, Brown has visited Montana, per Coro.

Hibbitts, standing 6-foot-8, didn’t play a ton in two seasons at Michigan but he was, after all, with one of the elite teams in the country. During his sophomore season, he was a part of the Michigan team that made it all the way to the National Championship.

Overall, Hibbitts played 15 games in Ann Arbor. In 2017, he made the Big Ten All-Academic team.

While he was a preferred walk-on with the Wolverines, he had scholarship offers from several mid-major programs.
