Brown shows potential at Curry camp
One of the top performers at the Stephen Curry Select Camp was also the youngest. Troy Brown, a 2017 recruit out of Las Vegas (Nev.) Centennial, competed and looked the part of high-major recruit against the upperclassmen. "I think I'm at the same level they are," the 14-year old said about the competition at Curry camp. "It isn't too much of a challenge. It's just playing basketball. They might be a little bit older, but it's just playing basketball." A 6-foot-6 lead guard, Brown impressed with his ball skills, feel, passing ability and athleticism. He was aggressive in drills, showed he could make plays with the ball in his hands and made it to the finals in the one on one competition. Brown told Scout.com that he used the event as a learning experience and even took notes during Curry's film sessions. "He's teaching us a lot," Brown said. "He's a lot older than us and he's seen a lot more. He's a lot wiser and knows a lot more tricks than we do. He's teaching us a lot of stuff. Usually at camps you just run up and down, but at this one you're getting a lot of drills in and learning and it's actually a really fun experience." "We watched film for 30 minutes every day before we came here," Brown added. "We watched what Steph does and all the stuff he does during the season and how it translates to the game." Brown may just be a rising sophomore, but he has already received scholarship offers from UNLV, Arizona and USC. UCLA, Florida State and Kansas have also shown minor interest. Brown's sister is a sophomore on Kansas' women's team. So Brown is familiar with the Kansas program. "I actually went down to Kansas to see my sister play and they let me take an unofficial visit," Brown said. "It was real nice. It was fun. Kansas was where basketball started so they have great fans. It's like a heritage and a culture over there." Although they haven't shown interest in Brown yet, he said he grew up following the Duke program. "I'm kind of a Duke fan and that's kind of what I'm leaning towards but I'm not really thining about college right now," he said. "I just want to be a kid and have fun."
