Frankie Brown, a 6-foot-5 swingman from Beverly Hills, Calif., will attend Penn. Brown averaged 23 points per game and eight rebounds at Beverly Hills High this past season. He was recruited heavily by Southern California, which decided not to offer him a scholarship. Jed Ryan, a 6-5 forward who averaged 24 ppg for Cathedral Prep in Erie and Paul Romanczuk, a 6-6 forward from Archbishop Carroll in Philadelphia, are the only other players to verbally commit. Ray Carroll, who said he will attend the University if admitted, will likely join that group. Carroll is a 6-3 guard who averaged 23 ppg and 10 rpg for Chester High. Indiana transfer Rob Hodgson, South Carolina transfer Peter Van Elswyk and 6-11 center Jeff Knoll from Seattle are also considering the Quakers.
