The Texas native is ranked 8th in the class of 2020 per 247Sports Composite and is considered the top power forward in the country. Brown plays his high school basketball at Vandegrift High School in Austin, Texas. He most recently played on the EYBL circuit for the Texas Titans, with elite teammate Cade Cunningham. Brown averaged 18.7 PPG, 8.5 RPG, and 1.5 BPG over the course of the summer.
The mobile big man has taken visits to Texas, UNC, and Memphis over the course of his recruitment. In April, Brown raved about his visit to UNC. With plans to go back, it appears the Tar Heels have made a strong impression on the senior big. On the other hand, it appears that Texas head coach Shaka Smart has the strongest relationship with him, largely due to being the hometown team. Memphis has come on late as a dark horse, and it’s impossible to count Penny Hardaway out. Auburn and Kentucky have been in on Brown for a while, but don’t appear to have the same momentum as the other three.
Brown has previously said that he plans to announce his commitment before his senior season starts. With the top 5 coming in early August and visit season approaching, it appears he is on track to do that. Look for Brown to announce his decision in time for the early signing period in November.
