Brandan Kearney has been well-traveled in his college basketball career and the graduate transfer from Arizona State will end his career at Detroit, in Kearney’s home state of Michigan.

A 6-foot-5 native of Detroit, Kearney started his career at Michigan State and played for a season and a half before transferring to the Sun Devils. Kearney announced his decision to attend Detroit on his Twitter.

Kearney has never played more than 327 minutes in a season in three attempts as he looks to close out strong at Detroit. Titan head coach Ray McCallum should be familiar with Kearney’s game; Kearney was a backcourt running mate of McCallum’s son Ray Jr., -- now with the Sacramento Kings -- on Team Detroit on the grassroots circuit.

Last season for Arizona State, Kearney averaged 1.2 points a game in 6.5 minutes per game in only 19 games last season. Detroit struggled to a 13-19 finish last season and could use a veteran player like Kearney to log some minutes on the wing.
