Highlights and Analysis of Top 10 2017 PG Troy Brown from USA Basketball

Oct. 25 -- Scout's 6th ranked prospect in 2017, Troy Brown only helped solidify his status as one of the nation's most versatile prospects at the USA Basketball Junior National Team Minicamp in Colorado Springs. Here are highlights and analysis of Brown from the event...

Analysis: Already one of the nation's most versatile prospects regardless of class, Troy Brown measured in at 6-foot-5 with a 6-foot-8.5 wingspan, helping solidify the argument of how many positions he'll be capable of playing at the next level.

Offensively, the 2017 Las Vegas Centennial point guard is best on the ball due to his handle and vision, but his ability to create his own shot and attack the basket, along with his size and length, certainly allow him to play the two and three as well. 

On defense, Brown has the size, length, athleticism and feel to defend most college twos and threes, while he will likely be able to defend many ones as well. He rebounds well for the position due to his motor and timing and has a competitive approach to the game.

The five-star prospect has a high basketball IQ and plays engaged and consistently hard on both ends. His jumper has improved with reps and strength and in general he's had no problem getting stronger over the course of his high school career. 

He'll need to keep working on his jumper and handle, but impacts the game positively in so many ways that he has an extremely high floor at the next level.

The five-star prospect is a winning player and his unique versatility will make him a priority for a long list of programs before his recruitment is all said and done.

Recruiting: Brown recently told Scout that ArizonaCaliforniaStanfordUCLA and UNLV are recruiting him the hardest.
