Mathews Stays Home…Chooses the Bison

What a difference a summer can make.

At this time last year, Garrison Mathews (Franklin) was hardly a blip on the recruiting radar scene.



After a summer on the circuit playing with the Nashville Flood, the 6'5 shooting sensation accumulated a few offers and chose to stay right there at home and will attend Lipscomb University next fall.

Mathews, who is an outstanding shooter, is a big wing who finds ways to put the ball in the hole.

He is the 6th player from the Class of 2015 to pledge D1.

The Bison of Lipscomb are coached by Casey Alexander and play in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

They finished 15-15 last season with a solid 10-8 mark in conference play.
