Brown Tightening Up His List

The best prospect in Canada is spending his last season of basketball north of the border. At this time next year, he'll matriculate to a U.S. college and as it stands, he's going to be going to a very good one. Brown has interest from some of the nation's best programs.

Starting To Get His Visits Down

Every year, a few players migrate to the States from Canada. Last year, Duane John was the best Canadian prospect and he signed with Missouri. This year, the top Canadian is Denham Brown and he's got plenty of suitors from the south.

"[The process] has been good," Brown said. "I got like five or six schools left." According to Brown himself, the actual number is five as in UConn, Virginia, Kansas, Rutgers and Boston College.

He'll visit Virginia the weekend of Sept. 14. A late October visit to Kansas is likely to be rescheduled for an earlier date. He's already been to UConn, Boston College and Rutgers on unofficials so there isn't a pressing need to spend a weekend at those schools on an official visit.

"The school and the coach and things like that will be important and the ability to play early," Brown said. Last year, Brown averaged 25 points at contest as a junior. He made quite an impression on American basketball aficionados at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions in May. From there, he turned in a solid summer and solidified his standing as Top 60 prospect. He's strong, athletic and can shoot it. What else would you want from a 3-man?
