Andy Brown, 6-7 JR PF Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, is an interesting prospect. Brown has pretty good ball skills and the ability to play both inside and on the perimeter. He moves well for a young big kid and has a nice upside.
I spoke with Brown recently and he gave me his current list of schools.
"Right now, the main ones are Utah, Michigan, Notre Dame, Santa Clara, San Diego, SMU and Portland," said Brown.
Brown said three programs on his list have offered.
"Santa Clara, Utah and San Diego have offered," said Brown.
Brown talked a little about the issues he'll consider when picking a school.
"I want to go someplace that not only has a good basketball program, but also good academics," said Brown. "I'm looking to see where I fit in best with the players, coaches and students. I'm not really sure yet about location. I'd kind of like to stay in the west, but Michigan and Notre Dame are both great schools. If I don't end up at one of those two, I'll probably stay in the west. As far as early playing time, I definitely want to play as soon as I get there."
Brown said he's not close to making a decision.
"I want to see what schools offer," said Brown. "I'll probably decide after the summer – I want to see how I do in the summer."
Brown said he has a GPA "around 3.8 or 3.9."
