Brown Develops A Trio Of Favorites

An injury ended J'Covan Brown's summer in June, but it didn't stop the constant recruiting interest he's receiving. We caught up with Brown and he explained his recruiting situation!

J'Covan Brown wasn't the easiest guy to find or get a hold of this summer. Even a high level D-1 college coach warned us he would be tough to get in touch with, but after multiple calls we finally ran down the talented guard prospect.

Once we got the 6-foot-2, 180-pound rising senior on the phone he informed us about the progression of his broken foot, which he injured in early June by stepping on a defenders foot.

"Everything is going fine," Brown said. "My foot is getting better, but it's not going like I expected it to go. It's doing all right. It's still kind of sore. It's almost there, but not quite."

Despite being out for nearly the entire summer, Brown didn't lose his college interest. Truth be told, Brown, who is ranked No. 10 at the shooting guard spot by Scout.com, is one of the best guards still available in the 2008 class.

"Coaches are still calling me all the time," he added. "They are all still recruiting me hard."

Browns list of suitors includes Oklahoma State, Baylor, Lamar, Texas, Arkansas and New Mexico. Of the schools recruiting him, Brown has developed three favorites.

"Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma State are my three top schools right now," Brown said.

Thus far he's taken unofficial visits to Baylor and Texas, but hasn't taken a trip to Stillwater, Okla., yet. Although the date isn't solid, there's a good possibility Brown will make the trip to Oklahoma State the weekend of September 8th.

Brown, who hopes to make his final decision within the next two months, led Port Arthur (Tex.) Memorial to a 29-6 record last season. He averaged 26.3 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game.
