Center Moses Brown continues to develop into one of the best long term prospects in the 2018 class. Brown, who continues to grow and now is pushing 7-feet tall, runs the floor well, has a nice touch, and showed off his talent at the Primetime Shootout.
“I’ve improved a lot since the summer,” said Brown of his junior year. “I feel like this summer was a breakout for me, and during the season I feel like I can score with ease in the post. I think with our team we should win the state title.”
On the recruiting trail a long list of schools are showing Brown significant recruiting attention.
On Sunday in a big time matchup against five-star 2017 prospect Nick Richards, loads of coaches were in the stands.
One of them was Kentucky boss John Calipari, and the Wildcats continue to show a lot of interest in Brown.
“I feel like that is a school that can develop a lot of pros,” said Brown. “You go there to leave. It is a place that develops you, and a place where you can get to the NBA right away. I think that would be a good situation for me.”
Also assistants from Maryland and St. John’s were in the gym watching.
About Maryland, Brown said, “I went to Maryland when we played at the Gonzaga tournament. That game was packed. It was a home game and I expected it to be packed, and I liked what I saw there, and I have a good relationship with Coach Bino (Ranson).”
St. John’s is located very close to Brown’s house in the city, and it is a school that has been recruiting Brown for a long time.
“St. John’s has been recruiting me since the summer of my freshman year,” explained Brown. “They are emphasizing that I stay close to home and be a hometown hero.”
Rick Pitino and his staff have also taken a liking to Brown, and continue to make him a priority recruit.
“Louisville is a good program,” said Brown. “They have a great coach in Rick Pitino and they are talking me to my dad and I a lot. I think I could develop there.”
Another school beginning to turn up the interest is Duke. While the Blue Devils are just beginning the process, it is a school of interest for Brown.
“Duke is like Molloy, it isn’t all about basketball. It is also about academics,” said Brown. “That is something I like about Duke, and I hope to get down there.”
For now Brown says he has no plans to make a decision or even narrow down his list.
