5-star Jordan Brown puts on a show at the Surf N Slam

SAN DIEGO -- Five-star sophomore power forward Jordan Brown backed up his top five ranking at the Surf N Slam with a dominant performance in the semi-finals.

Roseville (Calif.) Woodcreek sophomore Jordan Brown is already ranked No. 4 overall in the 2018 class and he only solidified his lofty status at the Surf N Slam.

Playing in the semi-finals of the event, Brown was nothing short of dominant, scoring 36 points and reeling in 13 rebounds. Brown finished 13-for-24 from the field and 10-for-12 from the free throw stripe.

It was evident watching Brown, a 6-foot-10 power forward, on Wednesday that he’s received good teaching and has put in a considerable amount of time into improving his scoring package by the rim and from the mid and high post.

Brown was aggressive when he received touches, while showcasing tremendous footwork and feel on the block. Brown is equipped with a terrific set hands and superb touch around the basket. Brown flashed jump hooks, turnaround jumpers and counter moves.

But Brown, whose father played at Louisiana Lafayette and was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs, showed he was much more than just a post scorer. Brown has good length, instincts and mobility. Brown ran the floor with purpose, showed a good motor and was extremely active pursuing rebounds, both in and out of his area.

Brown’s performance was easily the best post scoring performance I’ve seen during this high school season.

During the Surf N Slam, assistants from UCLASan Diego State and Texas stopped by to evaluate him.. Brown currently claims scholarship offers from CaliforniaKansasUCLAArizona and San Francisco.
