Official visit primer: Four-star Chaundee Brown

With the Deacs locked in seemingly a head-to-head battle for his services with Kansas, four-star SG Chaundee Brown will take his official visit to Winston-Salem this weekend.

One of the Deacs top two targets remaining in the 2017 class will soon be on his way to Winston-Salem, giving coach Danny Manning the final shot to secure a verbal commitment. 

Chaundee Brown, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Orlando, Florida, is expected to arrive on campus Saturday morning along with his mother and father. 

Let's take a look at his official visit and where things stand right now: 


(SCOUT): An aggressive scorer, Chaundee Brown has been a household name on the recruiting trail since his sophomore year, but he emerged further during his final summer playing on the Nike EYBL circuit. Standing 6-foot-4, Brown has fine size for the position and is equipped with a strong, chiseled frame. Brown's mentality is to score and actively looks to drive the ball or hunt jump shots from both mid-range and three. He appears to be improving as a shooter from distance, as he shot it particularly well at the Nike Peach Jam in July of 2016. Brown is tough, physical and does a good job of playing through and finishing with contact.


Chaundee's father, Chaundee Brown Sr., spoke with Scout about the recruitment earlier this year. 

"Wake Forest is recruiting him really hard," Chaundee Brown, Sr.  said. "He’s spoken with coach (Danny) Manning a couple times and a couple assistants have come down to see him.

"He likes the way they run the offense and how he lets the team play. They have a young team right now and if he did go in he would be stepping into a seasoned team."


Both Randolph Childress and Brett Ballard have been all over the Brown recruitment thus far, and both have went to watch him during the evaluation period this month. 


All appearances have this down to just Kansas and Wake Forest. Though it has to be tough, if anyone would know how to successfully recruit against the Jayhawks, you'd think it would be Manning, Ballard and Steve Woodberry. Kansas has also visited Brown often during the evaluation period, including an 11th-hour trip Thursday. 

Final thoughts director of basketball recruiting analyst Evan Daniels: "Wake Forest has aggressively pursued Chaundee Brown and appear to be in great position with him. Obviously they have some stiff competition, but Wake Forest and Kansas appear to be in the best spots right now. This visit will be big for Wake Forest, as he's arguably their top target and they have a chance to potentially close the deal."
