“I could not have done it without them. Thank you to everyone who has helped me reach this point. I am so incredibly proud and excited to make the transition from a wildcat to a Bear. #BrunoOnTheRise ”

Han will join already-committed Tory Center and Taylor Seaman in the Brown University class of 2021.

*IVY LEAGUE DISCLAIMER: A “verbal commitment” by a coach is not an offer of admission, as only the Admissions Office has that authority. An Ivy League coach can only commit his or her support in the admissions process.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email to [email protected].
