2018 Intro: Jordan Brown

Jordan Brown is one of the West Coast's top prospects in 2018. Here's an intro to his game and recruitment.

One of the top power forwards nationally in 2018 comes from Roseville (Calif.) Woodcreek in 6-foot-9, 180-pound Jordan Brown.

After proving his talent against several of the top underclassmen in the country at the USA Basketball Developmental Camp, Brown has had a successful freshman season.

"I think my game is coming along quite nice," Brown said. "I'm scoring and helping the team out. I'm defending and grabbing boards. I need to keep stepping up my intensity to help the team anyway I can."

Brown is best from the high post, where he can hit open jumpers, attack the basket or find cutters with his high level vision, but he's also capable of playing inside.

"Whenever I'm in the gym I work in the high post and low post," Brown said. "I want to be able to take my defender one on one from the outside and also be able to score inside.

"I know that the double team is going to come down low so I'm always looking for one of my teammates and get them the open pass."

Being that he's just a freshman, Brown's recruitment is still at its beginning stages, but he's aware of one school that has already taken notice.

"I know California has come by," Brown said. "I know they know about me and are watching me."

It's early into Brown's recruitment, but he has a pretty good idea of what he'll be looking for in a school.

"I really like campuses," he said. "I want a nice campus, nice people, good academics and a nice team. I would probably go anywhere."
