During the 2009-10 campaign at Northwest, Brown still earned 1st Team All-District honors while averaging around 22 points, 4 assists, and 9 rebounds per contest.
This summer he helped lead Team Nashville to a 4th place finish at the Kentucky Hoopfest. He is also a two sport athlete who is now currently playing football this fall.
Brown said he is a strong shooter and also has a strong all around game. He has been working on his foot speed and his handles.
The Miami RedHawks had been following Brown closely this summer. Brown said he is waiting to see if Miami offers a scholarship in the near future.
Brown took some time to get familiar with Miami. He does know of the superstar power the school continues to produce and is aware Miami was the home of Wally Szczerbiak, Ben Roethlisberger, and Ron Harper." He had been in contact with Miami assistant coach Jimmy Lallathin.
Brown now has eight scholarship offers. Before July, he had been offered by Austin Peay, Lipscomb, Belmont, and Murray State. Since then, Wofford, Delaware, Tennessee-Martin, and Elon have offered. Brown also mentioned interest from Southern Illinois, South Carolina, Morehead State, Tulane, UAB, Tennessee State, Wright State, Northeastern, and UT-Chat.
Brown has not narrowed down his list of schools because he is waiting to see which schools are truly interested.
He is a looking for a school that has "a good education that (he) can benefit from." He also wants a good basketball program where he can "excel." He is not concerned about distance from home.
Academically, Brown has a 3.0 GPA and earned a 21 on his ACT. He is leaning toward majoring in journalism or sports medicine. He is interested in journalism as he would like to be a broadcaster some day. As for sports medicine, the appeal is that as a trainer, he can keep around sports ("I do not want to get too far away from basketball.").
RedHawk Insider will continue to follow Andre Brown in the future.
