UCLA Offers Elite 2018 Prospect, Jordan Brown

Jul. 31 -- Jordan Brown projects as such a good prospect as just a rising sophomore, that it's easy to project him as one of the best prospects in the 2018 national class...

UCLA has offered 2018 prospect, Jordan Brown, the 6-9 post from Roseville (Calif.) Woodcreek.

Even though Scout hasn't yet done a ranking of the 2018 class yet, Brown will almost certainly be considered among the handful of best prospects in that class nationally.

This is what Scout's Rob Harrington wrote about Brown last week:

It’s far too early to size up the Class of 2018 from a rankings point of view, but one guy everyone knows will factor in is Jordan Brown. Brown possesses the size, mobility and skill at an early age to suggest an extremely promising future.

Brown is a very easy call for high-major programs, and it doesn’t take more than a five-minute evaluation to arrive at that conclusion. In addition to his height and ability to run the floor, Brown possesses above-average quickness already — and that’s something that tends to improve for young big men — and a truly outstanding jump shot.

P>He faces comfortably anywhere from 10 to 18 feet and confidently knocks down shots. His free throw stroke also is very smooth, setting him up for high efficiency performances as he matures.

Brown’s recruitment undoubtedly will be intense. During the last July Evaluation period, coaches from major programs devoted their precious time to trekking all the way acroos Las Vegas to observe him, which is something for a rising sophomore.
