New Jersey Guard Ready For D-1 Challenge

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a final look at the individual game of New Jersey guard prospect Aaron Brown, who is preparing himself to play division one college basketball ...

Aaron Brown, a 6-foot-5, 185-pound backcourt player from St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, New Jersey, is one of the more intriguing prospects to come out of the tri-state area this past season.

Brown has a great deal of upside in his offensive game as he showed while competing in the Jordan Brand Classic held last month at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

HOW HE PLAYED IN JORDAN BRAND CITY/SUBURBAN ALL STAR GAME:

Aaron showed his usual skill level, nailing down three three-pointers, showing he has great range on his jumper.

He produced 16 points and demonstrated he has the ability to score points in bunches, flatten a zone defense, and can move the ball quickly out of double teams.

Brown will play for Temple and should have a great career. He'll be an impact player for sure, due to his ability to drain long-range jumpers.

WHAT AARON BROWN HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIS FUTURE:

"I'm looking forward to improving as a player and making a contribution," he said. "I had a great time playing high school basketball. I'll have to be even better on the next level."

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Scout.com's national reporter Dave Telep broke the commitment a while back and got feedback regarding Brown's situation with Temple and his future as a division one player.

"I think it's a great fit," Gray Bees coach Dan Hurley told Scout.com's Telep. "He had a bunch of Ivy's because he's a strong student. He's had (high-major) interest as a backup recruit but I think Temple is the school that he was comfortable with signing early."
