Catching Up With Terps Commit- Alexis Brown

TSR catches up with 2013 women's basketball commitment Alexis Brown.

Buford High School (Buford, GA) rising sophomore Alexis Brown has already verbally committed to playing basketball for University of Maryland head coach Brenda Frese in 2013. Brown comes from a strong basketball lineage. Her father Dee Brown played 12 season in the NBA.

2013 Terp fans can expect Brown, a 5’9’’ point guard, to demonstrate a strong sense of court vision, as she states this as her best asset. “I’m able to see everyone on the court and make plays for people. I don’t just work on my stats or how I score but I [work on] getting everyone involved,” said Brown.

While some may think sophomore year is early for a commitment, Brown says that she has “loved Maryland since [she] was 8 or 9 years old.” Further solidifying her appreciation for the Terps was the addition of Kristi Toliver as starting point guard in 2005. “When Kristi Toliver started playing there I fell in love all over again,” Brown said.

Brown believes that she and Toliver have similar playing styles, and knowing that Toliver developed and excelled at Maryland gives Brown assurance that the same could happen for her.

Playing at Maryland finally became a reality when Brown unofficially visited the campus for head coach Brenda Frese’s Elite Player Camp, June 23-25. “It was a lot of fun,” says Brown, “I loved all of the coaches and staff, and the players were there too, watching the whole time.”

Shortly after, on June 26, Brown’s decision to attend Maryland was released on her AAU team’s website. Confident in her commitment, Brown has one piece of advice for other college basketball hopefuls: “you should definitely consider Maryland.”
