Former Oregon State forward, Breanna Brown has announced her decision to join Georgia Tech as a graduate transfer. The school announced the decision with a press release.

From the release:

We are very excited to welcome Breanna to our Georgia Tech family. She is an outstanding student-athlete. Bre has competed at the highest level and has tremendous experience! She will give us depth inside next season and provide us with a defensive presence with her shot-blocking and rebounding abilities.

Breanna Brown averaged 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game during her junior season. She also earned Pac-12 honorable mention honors for her work on the defensive end.

Brown’s decision to leave Oregon State as a graduate transfer might come as a surprise to Beaver fans, but she has been thinking about her future beyond basketball. Ultimately, she wants to manage a media company and seems to have found a better graduate program for her needs at Georgia Tech.

Oregon State will now return just one senior next season, center Marie Culich. Sophomore guard Mikayla Pivec is the Beavers only other returning starter. The Beavers should still be strong in the post thanks to incoming recruits Joanna Grymek and Taya Corosdale.
