Brown earned way into LeBron Camp
Zach Brown, a 6-foot-11 center from Miami Beach (Fla.) Senior, has been one of the top performers of the spring and summer. Just a sophomore-to-be, Brown dominated the Nike Elite 100 event in mid-June and earned a trip to the LeBron James Skills Academy. Brown competed in the camp this past weekend and although he was one of the younger competitors there, he showed he was one of the more talented ones as well. “I’ve been playing great,” Brown said when asked about the event. “I’m basically dunking the ball, lay ups and reverse lay ups and because I’m left handed that’s my powerful side,” Brown said. “I’m blocking shots and getting tons of rebounds and just having high IQ on the court and I can run the court like most guards.” At the Elite 100 event, Brown was able to utilize his size and strength to clear space in the paint and overpower defenders for baskets. He said that has been a little more difficult at the LeBron James Skill Academy. “They are stronger and they are all my size, rather than people my age,” Brown explained. “I’m stronger than most, but it’s been a little tougher here, but I’ve managed to get through it. I like banging inside.” Brown’s recruitment began to pick up this spring. A number of high major schools have made it clear they are interested. “I’ve heard from several schools,” Brown said. “My high school coach really deals with that. But I’ve talked on the phone to Kansas and Kentucky. I have UConn that wants to recruit me. University of Miami, Florida State and the Florida Gators and Virginia too.” Brown, who is ranked No. 3 overall in the 2017 class, said Miami and Virginia have offered him a scholarship.
