2018 center Moses Brown shows potential, adds offers

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. -- One of the more promising 2018 prospects on the Under Armour circuit is 7-footer Moses Brown. He showed his potential and talks recruiting with Scout this past weekend.

Word has been trickling out of the Northeast regarding 2018 center Moses Brown and his long-term potential.

Brown, a 7-foot prospect that plays spring ball with New Heights, certainly showed off his upside this past weekend at the Under Armour Association Los Angeles stop.

Through 12 games playing up in the 17’s division, Brown is averaging 6.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks a game. Brown attributes his steady improvement to work outs with coach Rahme Anderson.


“Definitely it’s because of coach Rah,” he said when asked about his improvement. “We are always in the gym four or five days a week. It’s hard not to get better when you’re in the gym that much.”

While the production is starting to pick up, it’s evident that Brown’s best days are ahead. He has impressive physical gifts. To go with his size, he’s long and quite mobile for a player of his size.

Brown has a quality set of hands, nice touch and is comfortable shooting jump hooks on the block. He also impacts things with his presence on the defensive end.

“Offensive rebounding and defensive rebounding,” he responded when asked about his strengths. “I can actually do things outside of what I can do in the post. As far as helping the team when, I do what I do in the post because that’s what coach needs of me.”

As expected, schools are starting to take notice of Brown.

“Everything is going good,” he said about recruiting. “Last week Maryland offered me. Florida offered me this week. Yesterday Oklahoma State talked to me.”

To go with the new interest, Brown said MinnesotaSt. John's, Manhattan, St. Peters and Iona have been actively pursuing him. St. John’s is his only visit to date.

“That was good,” he said of his trip back in September. “They have a good coaching staff. They are good people. They show a lot of love. Also because I’m from New York and they want me to stay home.”

What is Brown looking for in a school?

“As far as me picking a school, I want to go to a school that is going to develop me for the next level,” he said. “A school that is going to get me stronger and help me work on my body so I’ll be ready to enter the Draft right away.”
