Brown having big July

So far Jaylen Brown has been one of the elite performers in the month of July, and numerous schools are working hard in his recruitment.

Five-star prospect Jaylen Brown is doing everything he can on the court to go even higher in the rankings and add more scholarship offers. The Game Elite standout has dominated the competition so far this summer, and showing all the talent that makes him one of the elite recruits in the country.

"The summer is going pretty good," said Brown. "I think the team is playing well, and I am just trying to get better playing against the best players. Also I want to show everybody what I can do."

Schools such as Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Georgetown, Maryland, Kansas, North Carolina State, Louisville, and Texas all have been deeply involved with Brown's recruitment for a while, with a few other schools coming in recently as well.

"Everybody has pretty much hit me up saying they would be watching in July," said Brown. "A few new schools would be Connecticut, UCLA, and Auburn."

Hearing from the Bruins is a big deal for Brown. Even though UCLA is located far from his Atlanta home, Brown says it is great to hear from such a prestigious program.

"It is good to hear from them," Brown explained. "I know they have the most NCAA titles in basketball. It is humbling to know they are recruiting me and they have offered me a scholarship."

While UCLA has the most titles in history, Louisville is the current national champ, and they have also been in close contact with Brown.

"I talk to Coach (Wyking) Jones about once per week," said Brown of Louisville. "We are building a good relationship and he seems like a real cool guy. Louisville is a great school and obviously Coach (Rick) Pitino is a great coach. I have all good things to say about them."

The school recruiting Brown the longest is Georgia Tech, and he says the Yellow Jackets will always be high on his list.

"I have had a relationship with Georgia Tech since eighth grade," said Brown. "They were the first school to start recruiting me, so I am always going to have a place for Georgia Tech. They were looking at me when no one else was, so you will always remember that team."

At this point Brown is simply playing out the month of July and after that he will begin thinking about making some more unofficial visits.

"I have nothing for sure," said Brown of visits. "I want to get out and take some visits, but I don't have anything locked in. I want to see some schools for Midnight Madness, so I have to make some plans after July."

Brown is currently viewed as the No. 11 prospect in America.
