One of Florida's top prospects in 2017 is Chaundee Brown, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard from Orlando The First Academy.
The father of Scout's 64th ranked prospect in 2017, Chaundree Brown, Sr., is pleased with how his son played as a junior.
"He had a really good season," Brown, Sr. said. "He averaged close to 18-20 points a game and had a couple 30-point games. He took advantage when he had smaller guys on him by overpowering them and taking them to the basket."
"Wake Forest is recruiting him really hard," Brown, Sr. said. "He’s spoken with coach (Danny) Manning a couple times and a couple assistants have come down to see him.
"UConn as well. Coach (Kevin) Ollie and a couple of assistants saw him at a tournament at Montverde and were impressed with him."
Brown, Sr. broke down what his son likes about those two programs.
Wake Forest: "He likes the way they run the offense and how he lets the team play. They have a young team right now and if he did go in he would be stepping into a seasoned team."
UConn: "Kevin Ollie is a hands on coach and a good motivator. He has a good coaching style; he motivates his players and (Chaundee) likes the offense he runs, he feels he could fit in with those guys."
At this point, there are no leaders in Brown's recruitment.
"He’s wide open right now," his father said. "He’s the type of kid that doesn’t mind going away for a UConn, Kansas or Maryland; he wouldn’t mind going away. I think with AAU he travels so much that he’s kind of used to it."
While more schools can join Brown's list, he knows of at least a couple schools he would like to see.
"He’s going to take a couple more visits," Brown, Sr. said. "He’s taken unofficial visits to Maryland and Kansas and he wants to take visits probably to UConn and Wake Forest. He’s not going to take all five of them."
Brown, Sr. said academics will play a role in a decision that likely comes in the fall.
"September or October, sometime around there," he said.null
