UCLA welcomes top-30 big man

Despite being a high-profile prospect for a few years now, Jordan Brown (No. 30) is only now really getting into his recruitment. Heís taken just one official visit so far, last weekendís cross-country trip to St. Johnís. This weekend, he heads to UCLA -- and the Bruins have made a strong move for him this fall. Coach Steve Alford is prioritizing big men in his 2018 class with the looming departure of Thomas Welsh, and Brown is atop the list. Fellow big man Kenneth Nwuba will also visit this weekend. The Bruins are also going after Moses Brown (No. 17), Bryan Penn-Johnson (No. 86), Kevin Zhang and some other frontcourt prospects, so they could put the squeeze on Brown -- and Nwuba -- to commit soon.

Prediction: UCLA

Confidence level: 40 percent

Others in the mix: St. Johnís, California, Oregon, Gonzaga, Nevada, Louisiana Lafayette

That's kind of a strange list. Looking at some of the top programs out west, but what the heck are St. John's and Louisiana-Lafayette doing on the list? Nevada kind of weird, too.

IIRC from this board, Louis. Laf. is his Dad's alma mater.

Do we know "IF" he has scheduled a visit to GU?

Also, with Filip on board would he now pass on GU due to competition for P/T?

I see Brown as a 5. Like Petrusev said, GU plays 2 bigs at all times anyways.

Nevada went 28 - 7 last year, made the NCAA tourney as a 12 seed, losing to Iowa State. The year before, under the same coach, they finished 24-14 and won the CBI championship. They aren't a "top program" out West but they appear to be headed in the right direction and signed Musselman to a nice contract extension.

Okay, anybody care to explain St. John's then? Mullin was a great player but hasn't exactly done much as a coach. The good old days w/ Looie coaching during the heyday of the Big East was a LONG time ago. Jarvis had a few good years as coach and Lavin had a few okay years, but really they are completely irrelevant. If a West Coast kid wants to go East, why the hell would you pick the Johnnies?

I just looked, Mullin is 22-43 in 2 years and 8-28 in conference, w/ some improvement from year 1 to year 2. Still nothing to get remotely excited about.

Maybe he has a really good shoe deal.

IMO, it's the bright lights of New York City.

In dreary Jamaica, Queens? SJU plays fewer and fewer gms in MSG, no one goes. Sad. Would fill the place w Mully, Berry, et a. Nah, probably the Big East or some AAU connection. Would not count the Redmen as comp for his services.

This kid and his family are doing recruitment the right way. That is in no way involved here.

His dad went to Louisiana-Lafayette. That's why they're in the running.

He father, Dion Brown, was drafted by the Spurs and he lead UL to the NCAA tourney. His dad was inducted into the ULL Hall of Fame.
