Briarwood, N.Y., big man Moses Brown said Louisville has made him 'a priority' in the recruiting process

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. - Briarwood, N.Y., big man Moses Brown said Louisville has made him 'a priority' in the recruiting process. Brown is the No. 2 ranked center prospect in the Scout.com rankings.

The University of Louisville basketball staff is trying to land a post player in the Class of 2018.

But several of the top post prospects have already committed and Scout.com national analyst Evan Daniels said prior to the July evaluation period that the crop of centers in the '18 class "is not very deep at all."

So, the staff has been out on the recruiting trail trying to find the best fit.

And one of the targets that Louisville has seemingly honed in on is Briarwood, N.Y., big man Moses Brown, who ranks as the No. 2 center prospect in the '18 class by Scout.com. He check in as the No. 6 prospect overall.

"They have made me a priority," Brown said. "They're definitely coming after me hard and telling me they want me.

"(Rick Pitino) has told me that he wants me to come in and make an immediate impact."

The 7-foot Brown said he's "paying attention" to the schools that really want him by seeing what coaches are watching his New Heights AAU team at the Under Armour finals. He'll attend the Under Armour camp in Philadelphia next weekend.

And then he said he has some things to do.

"I have not gotten around to cutting my list just yet," he said. "I'll probably do that after the summer.

"I want to get to visit some schools. But I don't have anything set up right now."

Brown has dozens of college scholarship offers, while U of L, Indiana, Maryland, Duke, Kentucky, St. John's and Arizona are the schools that he said are showing him a ton of interest.
